Our mission

Info-Nature Mauricie is an organization whose mission consists of preserving, enhancing and transferring knowledge of our environmental resources, ecological and heritage values.

To be able to accomplish this, Info-Nature Mauricie joins together individuals whose main interests lie in promoting and integrating the values of our mission by working to attain the following objectives:

  • Participating in the elaboration and the implementation of La Mauricie National Parks’ mission;
  • Promoting the discovery and appreciation of the natural and cultural heritage of La Mauricie National Park;
  • Informing and raising awareness within the general population of the importance of protecting the environment and cultural resources;
  • Informing and raising awareness of our individual role in preserving the environment;

With this mission, Info-Nature Mauricie wishes to become the populations’ reference in environmental protection and education.

Our history

In 1978, a group of biology and biochemistry students from UQTR created the Service Information Nature de la Mauricie. Its mission is to inform the public on various aspects of nature, contribute to its protection and work towards maintaining a healthy, sustainable environment. In 1982, the group becomes the first partner of Parks Canada in Québec. These proud partners then decide to help Parks Canada with its mission in continuing to raise awareness and commitment in the population for this magnificent area. Since then, Info-Nature Mauricie, a non profit organization, has becomed a distinguished partner for La Mauricie National Park. It contributes to enriching the experiences of visitors and involves itself in maintaining the natural beauty, ecological integrity and historical importance of these magnificent sites.

Info-Nature Mauricie is an organisation well rooted and appreciated within its community. It actively participates in social projects and cooperates in projects to enrich the historical value of our inheritance. Being a member is to share in this long and beautiful history of conserving and protecting the nature and the culture of La Mauricie. It helps to create an intimate relationship with the environment.

A nature-culture experience to cherish and share!
