Thanks to Nature

CPAWS Québec thanks you for your participation and for thanking Nature for everything it provides all year round!

See you in 2018 for the next edition!

What is Thanks to Nature? 

What used to be a celebration of the earth's bounty at our table, Thanksgiving Sunday is still the perfect time to show our appreciation to Mother Nature and get together with friends and family. For the second edition of "Thanks to Nature", the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS Québec) invited you to walk in nature and enjoy the rich autumnal colours for a good cause, on October 8.

Whether you want to take a break from your hectic urban life, take care of your health or spend quality time with your family, any reason is a good reason to reconnect with the natural world and give thanks for our stunning surroundings.

A great and successful 2nd edition!

On Sunday, October 8, we were on site in six different Québec national parks:

> Mont-Tremblant National Park
> Iles-de-Boucherville National Park
> Jacques-Cartier National Park
> Grands-Jardins National Park
> Mont-Saint-Bruno National Park
> Mont-Orford National Park

Thanks to Nature is also the annual fundraising campaign of SNAP Québec, to help us protect biodiversity and wilderness in Quebec. This year, we collected more than 14,000$ through our fundraising platform! We want to thank you all for your donations and participation.

Donations will be used to:

- Generate environmental leaders of tomorrow by providing an immersive outdoors experience to the youth of various communities.
- Carry out scientific projects in Québec's national parks while also conserving the flora and fauna
- Support CPAWS Québec’s activities to expand the protected areas network in Québec.

Thanks to Nature is organized with Sépaq, with the support of Keurig.
