The restoration project at Robinsons Island is an important part of the conservation work currently underway at Prince Edward Island National Park. Once complete, the new trail will offer an exciting, new way for Island residents and visitors to engage in the exploration and appreciation of some of Prince Edward Island’s most beautiful landscapes, as well as to see examples of reforestation efforts that are working towards a re-birth of the rich, Acadian forest in the area. The interpretative elements that will be installed next year will also feature the fascinating cultural history of the island, which has included use by Aboriginal peoples, farming and fishing and early tourism activities. The work taking place is a concrete example of Canada’s National Conservation Project (NCP), an initiative that aims to restore ecological integrity, conserve Canada’s lands and waters, and connect Canadians with the natural world around them.
At this time, we would like your help with what we find is always a fun, but often challenging, task: naming the beautiful, new trail! We are gathering name suggestions and, since you have been following the development of this trail from the beginning, we want to hear from you!
Please send us your suggestions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon, Tuesday, September 2, 2014 with the subject “Robinsons Island trail name.”
We will be creating a short list of submissions from those received which will be posted to our Facebook page to allow members of the public to vote for their favourite. All of this will be welcome input into the final selection of the name.
Thank you for your continued interest in Prince Edward Island National Park. We look forward to receiving your submissions!
