Here’s an interesting CBC article that I spotted today, detailing how Parks Canada is planning to add GPS to the activities available at some of the properties. The activities will focus more on interactive exhibit type things – my first thought was perhaps Wherigo but instead they will be using a product called Explora. It should be noted that Parks Canada is very geocacher friendly over the last few years. Fundy National Park hosts a geocaching challenge, and geocaches were recently launched at Fort Louisbourg.  Parks Canada has also reached out to cachers on the west coast to setup an official geocaching program at Gulf Islands National Park.

As Parks Canada is celebrating their 100 year anniversary, it’s great to see them exploring GPS related activities.
