Half a century of conservation, experiences and memories
La Mauricie National Park
In 2020, La Mauricie National Park celebrated its 50th anniversary. For half a century, passionate employees have been pursuing a big dream. In 1970, the park's founders laid the groundwork to turn the area into an iconic place that people have grown attached to, generation after generation.
We celebrated 50 years of conservation. Actions to protect and restore the park's ecological integrity have been ongoing over the years and are producing meaningful results. Lakes are returning to their true nature, forests are recovering, and endangered species are being protected.
We celebrated 50 years of experiences. Since its beginnings, La Mauricie National Park has been a unique place where people can experience all kinds of adventures, surpass themselves, learn and connect with nature.
Finally, we commemorated 50 years of memories. From the founders to visitors, employees, collaborators and partners, everyone has collected proud moments, pleasures shared as a family, and delightful anecdotes associated with La Mauricie National Park.
We worked hard to plan a festive year that would be punctuated by opportunities to learn more about this wonderful area and to gather together to mark this important anniversary.
Sadly, COVID-19 invited itself to the party and we had to rethink our way of celebrating. As a result, we highlighted this important milestone in the history of La Mauricie National Park through social and traditional media and thanks to the involvement of numerous collaborators and partners.
What is our wish for the next 50 years? For the park to be a leader in protecting and restoring ecosystems within and beyond its borders. We also want to ensure that the park continues to hold a special place in the hearts of Canadians through enriching, high-quality experiences.
A meaningful image
In support of the various celebration initiatives, we have specially created a graphic element that reflects the park's identity.
Around the number 50 are images that represent the diversity of La Mauricie National Park's ecosystem. For example, some protected species such as the wood turtle, the loon and the brook trout are depicted. The human history of the land, both ancient and modern, is symbolized by the handprint and the skier.
