KejimkujikBanff National Park Quiz


Established in 1967, Kejimkujik National Park’s vast interior landscape covers 381 square kilometres of lush forest, slow moving streams and island-studded lakes, providing a taste of Nova Scotia’s imposing inland wilderness. The high level of rainfall is essential to streams, which flood regularly in the spring, and the numerous shallow lakes that sustain both wildlife and flora. For thousands of years, people have played their role from the Micmac, who hunted and fished in the park area, through the era of trappers, loggers and prospectors, who exploited the land’s resources, to the present-day conservationists, who seek to preserve the park’s natural beauty for future generations. The Seaside Adjunct of Kejimkujik National Park, the rock-girded coastal section, where birds, reptiles and amphibians are particularly abundant, occupies 22 square kilometres at the tip of the Port Mouton peninsula.
