Visitor reception centre
On your next visit to Kouchibouguac, take the time to stop at the Visitor Reception Centre and talk to our staff, check out our new exhibits, watch our audio-visual presentation in the Theatre or buy a souvenir at the gift shop.
In order to better serve visitors, the reception area has undergone several changes. The new reception desk and its location facing the main entrance will allow staff to better serve and more directly engage visitors.
As well, the surrounding wall-size, eye-catching park orientation map, interactive program, and contemporary brochure displays will allow visitors to more successfully plan both their experiences in the park, throughout the region, and at other national parks and national historic sites.
- Memories of Our Communities: Learn, contemplate and reflect on the history of the once-thriving communities and the turmoil caused by the expropriation of the former Acadian and English-speaking residents’ lands to create the park.
- Where Land, Sea and People Meet: Discover the park`s awe-inspiring coastal geography and ever changing ecosystems, and its centuries old dynamic human history.
- Naturally Captivating: the Kouchibouguac Coastal Experience: Starring the Park`s different habitats throughout the 4 seasons and Park users.
The park’s not-for-profit cooperating association, AMICA, has modernized and relocated its souvenir shop to a larger space. This will allow it to expand its product line and meet visitors’ needs more efficiently.
It will also provide opportunities for AMICA to further fulfill its mission of promoting and preserving the park’s natural and cultural heritage.
