You’ll hear about management of this national park, visitor experiences, and its natural wonders including the Ipswich sparrows, bottlenose whales, and of course, horses. We’ll also talk history — archaeological surveys, shipwrecks, former residents and legends. You don’t want to miss out!

Speakers include keynote Karen Prentice, MP Andy Fillmore, and more than a dozen scientists, historians, adventurers, and Parks Canada representatives. Click here for the Program at a Glance.
