Learn More with Parks Canada at the Zoo | July and August

Visit the Parks Canada outreach education team at the Assiniboine Park Zoo throughout July and August to experience the sights and sounds of Manitoba’s two national parks, Riding Mountain and Wapusk, through interactive activities, games and quizzes. 

Wapusk National Park protects one of the earth’s largest polar bear denning areas, and is home to the Cape Churchill Caribou Herd. This park, on the shores of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba, is an important natural laboratory, attracting researchers from around the world. 

Riding Mountain National Park is a great destination for viewing wildlife and an important ecological sanctuary for many of the forest and grassland species found at the Zoo.
