Canada's National Parks Length: 65 minutes This colossus of land spans six time zones. Only Russia is larger. Exploration began with the voyageurs... and now the parks keep alive what they saw... set aside as national parks. This tape covers in detail 21 of Canada's 39 national parks. L'Anse aux Meadows Where icebergs persist all summer, Vikings waded ashore a thousand years ago. Today, it is generally agreed that the Vikings were the first Europeans to reach North America. Archaeological research has proven that Norse men and women warmed themselves by their fires here... almost 500 years before the voyages of Columbus. Gros Morne Gros Morne is known for some of the most spectacular scenery in eastern Canada... a land of fiords that lie in canyons carved by glaciers. The woodland caribou wander on the highlands, trying to escape the black flies... which really isn't possible. But the flies are even worse down below. In the southern park area, rock formations tell the story of moving continents. The French name, Gros Morne, means "Big Gloomy," which seems to describe the weather here. Cape Breton Highlands In Cape Breton Highlands National Park, winter lasts until the fourth month of the year. Few hikers venture into this highland plateau. Its rugged slopes may speak of freedom, but make tough going through the birch and spruce. At sunset, moose watchers come to French Lake. The moose were only reintroduced here in 1947. Now they are a chief attraction. At dawn, the red fox hunts to feed her pups, and the lynx retreats to its remotest sanctuary in the park. Her very existence depends on the healthy environment which the park provides. Kejimkugik Dawn in Kejimkujik Park is moment of utter peace. Eighty thousand years ago, ice ground over the bedrock, creating lakes that dominate the park today. Kejimkujik Lake is the liquid heart of the park. People of the Archaic Tradition were here before the Egyptians built the first pyramid. They linked their survival to the survival of other creatures, and found food in the lakes and forests. Prince Edward Island Park Prince Edward Island is Eastern Canada's most popular park. A million visitors come every year. They come to see the House of Green Gables. It is the actual setting for the book Anne of Green Gables, which has been published in seventeen languages. Lucy Maude Montgomery, who wrote the book, spent her own childhood here and in the woodlands which inspired the imagination of the little orphan girl. Visitors still come to share her love of the woods and flowers. Kouchibouguac In Kouchibouguac National Park, spring calls the black bear from his winter den. Kouchibouguac Park borders the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where a series of barrier islands blocks the tides from the forests. In the heart of the forest we find a strange open place, where trees are unable to get a foothold. It is a bog... a depression filled with six feet of sphagnum moss. There is little soil and almost no nitrogen which plants must have. So the pitcher plant has evolved its leaves to form a trap, catching insects to nourish itself. Fundy Fundy National Park is located on the Bay of Fundy, which is renowned for some of the highest tides in the world. On the tidal flats, water will rise 40 feet/12 meters in only six hours, transforming the valley into a standing marsh. The forests here too are evolving to their original form under the protection of the national park... even red spruce, which was almost wiped out by over-logging in the 19th century. La Mauricie In the 19th century, men of European descent persistently exploited the forests of Canada, cutting trees by the millions. They produced a moonscape of millions of acres, included here in La Mauricie National Park. But today under the care of Parks Canada, this land is also being reclaimed. The Canadian Shield is exposed in La Mauricie National Park... outcroppings of ancient rock that are over 600 million years old... the foundation stone of North America. The Shield covers about half of Canada. Point Pelee This is the most southern tip of mainland Canada. This will be the first bit of land for waves of birds during spring migration from the south. Point Pelee National Park was created because of the birds. It became a park in 1918 even though settlers and squatters had been here for a hundred years. But it was the birds that have continued to shape the future of this park. Now people come every spring... 100,000 of them in May alone... until they almost outnumber the birds.
