Free entry to provincial parks during Labour Day long weekend

Posted on: September 2, 2016  |  

The provincial government is once again offering free entry to provincial parks during the Labour Day long weekend.

Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox made the announcement Thursday.

“We encourage Manitobans to take the opportunity to enjoy all that our provincial parks have to offer,” Cox said in a news release.

“Late summer is the perfect time to enjoy cooler evenings, comfortable sleeping and the chance to create memories by the campfire.”

The province said park vehicle permits are not required in provincial parks from Friday to Monday, but regular camping and entrance fees to national parks still apply.

There will also be special interpretive programming this weekend, like back-country caravan tours to the bowl-shaped valley in Spruce Woods Provincial Park and guided tours of historic houses at St. Norbert Provincial Park.

The Whiteshell Fish Hatchery is open on the long weekend, and the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary Visitor Centre is open this weekend to Thanksgiving.

Several provincial park campsites, cabins and yurts will stay open through the fall, as well.

Reservation information can be found at http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/parks/

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at info@snoman.mb.ca or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
