Park Dreams Contest

I have been very fortunate to visit a number of Canada’s National Parks. As a photographer I enjoy being able to capture the stunning views or wildlife that make their home there. There are still many parks I would like to get to and add to my collection!

In celebration of the 100th birthday of Parks Canada, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS), is inviting Canadians to join in building Canada’s first national parks bucket
list. The “Park Dreams Contest: What’s on your bucket list?”, will run until August 24th. Grand prize for this Facebook-based contest is a dream trip for two to Nahanni National Park Reserve.

The “Park Dreams Contest” simply asks people to share in 50 words or less a dream experience they’ve already had or wish for in any one of Canada’s 42 national parks. The topic is wide, and CPAWS is looking for dreams ranging from the wildest excursion to the most stunning view, wildlife sighting, paddling haven or hiking thrill. There will be a two-week voting period after the closing date to help determine which 100 dreams will make it onto Canada’s first national parks bucket list.
