Camping 101: From Car Camping to the Backcountry

May 28 2021

A record number of reservations were made this year for provincial park campsites. It’s great to see so many people getting ready to sleep under the stars.

While Manitobans flock to parks this summer for camping adventures, it’s important to ensure we are all camping responsibly for a safe, enjoyable experience for ourselves and for others.

Sloan Cathcart — Head of Interpretation with Manitoba Parks — discussed tips, etiquette and basic rules for camping, including how to effectively follow the principles of Leave No Trace.

About the Speaker

Sloan has been a Park Interpreter with Manitoba Parks for over 15 years, working to build connections between park visitors and the natural, cultural and historical features in Manitoba’s provincial parks. As an avid camper himself, Sloan is always eager to share his vast knowledge of the park system and help visitors have positive experiences in parks.

Lunch and Learns

Nature has been here for us during the pandemic.

CPAWS Manitoba wants to maintain this positive connection to nature by providing a space for Manitobans to connect online from the safety of our homes and be inspired by nature in our backyards and beyond.

Join CPAWS Manitoba for weekly lunch and learn presentations from experts across the province who will share their knowledge and passion and bring new nature-inspired activities into our lives.

This program is possible thanks to the generous support of The Winnipeg Foundation and the Conservation Trust, a Manitoba Climate and Green Plan Initiative delivered by the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation.
