Hello #ParksLife community!

We are the 9th cohort of Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors and we are so grateful to have this opportunity in these unprecedented times. Whatever the next weeks bring, we are up to the challenge and there might even be some surprises in store for you. We have a ton of ideas and a lot of work ahead of us to share the work that Parks Canada does from our homes! Parks Canada is calling on Canadians to stay home therefore we are inviting you to follow us on our digital journey this summer.

We are #InThisTogether and we will:

  • Meet and present to you some extraordinary people who work where you play;
  • Introduce you to some conservation projects and reconciliation efforts taking place from coast to coast to coast;
  • Provide you with some great tools and resources to help you enjoy #ParksFromHome.

We are inspired, we are ready and we are so happy to begin this journey so make sure to follow us on #ParksLife!
