Where Land, Sea, and People Meet
This self-guiding, multimedia exhibit delves into the park’s diverse natural environment and interweaves the dynamic history of the people who once lived off the area’s natural bounty and their descendants who still depend on it.
The exhibit’s main objective is to help visitors create their own experiences at Kouchibouguac National Park.
A variety of interpretive techniques are used to bring the park’s natural world “to life,” including interpretive panels, interactive programs, originally produced videos, striking wildlife film clips, artifacts, models, and dioramas.
Archival and re-enactment photos interwoven throughout the exhibit’s theme components highlight the park’s centuries of human history: Mi’kmaq, Acadian, English, Scottish, Irish, and others as well as their present-day descendants.
