    CEP Ottawa presents: Snowshoe Tour in Gatineau Park!


    Join CEP for our annual snowshoeing event in Gatineau park! Grab your favorite pair of mits and snowshoes and spend your Sunday morning with an experienced naturalist and learn how animals and plants face the many challenges of winter survival. This event is a CEP favourite!

    Bring your own snowshoes or use a pair provided by the Gatineau Park. This is a great chance to get back in touch with what we really care about: the great outdoors! 

    Note: Spaces are limited! Register now!


    Visitor center, Gatineau park, 33 Scott road, Chelsea, Quebec.


    Sunday, February 25th, 2018.

    Please arrive on time!

    We meet inside the visitor centre at 9:30 for registration. Our tour starts from 9:45 am with a brief winter habitat 101 course, before we head outside. The event lasts about two hours. 

    No need to worry if you don't have previous snowshoeing experience. The team will help you put on your shoes, and the paths we are taking are not difficult at all!


    $25 for CEP MEMBERS

    $29 for NON-MEMBERS

    $25  for CHILDREN 12 AND UNDER

    This covers event ticket, snowshoe rental, guided tour, and a light snack on the trail. There are rumors that hot chocolate will be provided at the end of the tour!! - CEP will reimburse you $5 at the day of the event if you have your own snowshoes!


    Register for this event on the website. **Please note that because space is limited, we will have to cancel any registration that has not been paid within three days**.


    Similar to previous years, to make the event accessible for all of us and to reduce our event footprint, we are arranging rideshares. Why not be generous and offer a ride to others if you have space in your car?! We and the environment will thank you.

    When registering you can indicate whether you have car and and the number of people you can take. You can indicate also if you need a ride.

    The meeting location for rideshares will be Bridgehead on 366 Bank Street at 8:30 am.

    We will make the rideshare arrangements and get in touch with you with further instructions!


    Remember to wear winter boots that you can snowshoe in, and other weather-appropriate clothing.

    If the weather is way too cold or otherwise atrocious, we will notify everyone, cancel event and refund tickets.
