Connecting New Canadians and Nature: Welcome to Newfoundland!

 

Moving to a new city is never easy, but moving across the globe can be especially daunting.

 

This fall and winter we will be partnering with the Association for New Canadians, the Grand Concourse Authority, and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada to welcome families who have recently arrived in the province by introducing them to area natural areas, parks, and outdoor recreation opportunities. Outings to the Rooms, Salmonier Nature Park, and Pippy Park will give us the chance to experience nature in Newfoundland together, and we look forward to welcoming our new friends into the fold!

 

We are hopeful that this pilot project funded by WWF Canada will grow into a long-term program that will encourage the exchange of ideas across cultures while promoting Newfoundland’s natural areas as a source of recreation, health and well-being for all Canadians.

 

If you are interested in volunteering for this project, please contact the project coordinator at e.e.andres@gmail.com for more information
