1. How do I arrange a visit to the park for my class?

Salmonier Nature Park coordinates a formal school program each Spring and Fall which makes it possible for teachers to bring their class to the park for a unique interpretive program, as well as a nature hike and picnic. To arrange a visit, call 229-7189 or 229-7888 or fax to 229-7078 and arrangements will be made for your class. Reservations should be made in early May and early September, as the program fills up fast. (School Program)

2. How many students may I bring to the Park at any given time?

The average group size accepted (if you are interested in our interpretive program as well as the nature hike) is approximately 60 students with a leader for every seven students. If your group is larger than 60 students, arrangements may be made for two or more arrival times to accommodate the whole group. (Ex. 60 students arrive at 10:00 and 60 arrive arrive at 11:00). However, if your group is interested only in the nature walk, arrangements may be made for larger groups. Group size for a guided hike is limited to 30 students.

3. How does a student researching animals, the environment, etc. obtain this information?

If you cannot find the information here on our website (we have information included on animals native and introduced to Newfoundland and Labrador and on endangered and threatened species found in the Province), you can contact us directly at 729-6974 or 229-7888. In addition, the Canadian Wildlife Service publishes a series of information pamphlets (Hinterland Who's Who) on Canadian wildlife which may be obtained by contacting them directly or by accessing their website at Canadian Wildlife Service Website.Opens in new window
