Forming the Future of FNP

Have you ever visited Fundy National Park? Have you ever wondered how the park is managed? Have you ever thought you might have a better way to offer a service or protect a piece of nature? If you have then you might be interested in learning that Fundy National Park is interested in hearing your perspective. This Sunday at the Alma Activity Center, 8584 Main Street, Alma, from 2-4 and 6-8, FNP staff will be hosting an open house. The objective is to inform people about the proposed 5year management plan and gather feedback to finalize the plan.

This morning I headed to Alma to provide stakeholder input in a focus workshop and found it very informative. I think that the park staff need to focus more on preserving the ecological integrity of the parks wilderness areas and the interpretive services, while leaseholders or contractors provide the recreation activities in a controlled environment. All partners need to work together to make visitors feel welcome and provide a memorable experience and how that happens really will depend on the visitor.

I encourage you, if you have the time on Sunday, March 28th to take the drive to Alma and have your say. I am almost certain your drive will be more enjoyable than mine was this morning. If you live near the Park and haven't been there recently, then I suggest you go see what it has to offer.

See you in the woods.
