Interpretive programs

Yoho National Park

Explore. Learn. Connect. Park interpreters are here to share fun experiences with visitors in the park. Join us for an evening program or outdoor activity during your visit to the park! Programs are available to everyone, and you don't need to be staying in a campground to join in the fun.

 Programs and services are limited this season; additional restrictions may apply. Please check the Yoho National Park information portal dedicated to COVID-19 for regular updates.

We are excited to announce a full lineup of campground shows, roving educators and activities will return for the summer of 2024. Programs are currently in development so check back in spring for more details and scheduling. Our next campground evening shows will begin July 1, 2024!

Here is a sneak peek at some of the programs we will offer next summer:

  • Fire! Stop, drop, and learn about the role fire plays in our landscape. Discover how Parks Canada uses fire to help species thrive in our parks.
  • Aquatic Invasive Species Clean, Drain, Dry, Certify! Our waterways are in danger and they need your help. Learn about the invasive species that are threatening our native fish populations.
  • Species at Risk Parks Canada needs your help! These wildlife, plants and trees are at risk of local extinction. Learn about the species that are especially vulnerable to changes in the mountains and what you can do to help.
  • Burgess Shale Journey into the past to uncover fossils older than dinosaurs! Discover the creatures that lived here more than 500 million years ago and hold history in your hands.
  • Human Wildlife Coexistance Woah Bear! Viewing wildlife in their natural environment is one of the most exciting aspects of visiting the mountain national parks. Keeping your distance from wildlife can ensure the safety of both you and the wildlife.
  • And so much more!
