Go Wild at Salmonier Nature Park this Fall

With peak autumn colours on display and cooler weather making wildlife more active, fall is a great time to visit Salmonier Nature Park. Fall hours for the public are in effect until Monday, October 10. Gates are open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the park closing at 4 p.m.

School groups, youth organizations and service groups are invited to schedule a fall visit to Salmonier Nature Park for guided tours or curriculum-linked presentations until October 31.

Fall outreach programming begins November 1. For a list of programs or to schedule a virtual or in-person visit, email salmoniernaturepark@gov.nl.ca.

Approximately 40,000 people visit Salmonier Nature Park annually, including nearly 5,000 youth who participate in on-site school programming. Educational displays focusing on Newfoundland and Labrador’s wildlife species and natural heritage are on display in the visitor’s centre, and 84 species of birds, 15 species of mammals and over 170 species of vascular plants have been recorded within the park’s boundaries. Visitors can walk through boreal forest on a three-kilometre long boardwalk trail to view a variety of common species including arctic fox, Canada lynx, Newfoundland marten, woodland caribou, great-horned owls and other wildlife in their natural surroundings.

Budget 2022 allocated $2 million over four years for infrastructure upgrades at the park. This year, $500,000 will go towards upgrading the boardwalk trail system and wildlife enclosures, biosecurity enhancements to the park’s animal care building and improving parking facilities and service roads.
