About the event

Exploring Qausuittuq National Park

In the High Arctic

By Marlis Butcher, FRCGS

Marlis Butcher is an environmental conservationist and a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and of The Explorers Club.  Marlis is the first visitor to bag (visit) all 48 Canadian national parks, 1/3 of which have no road access. To share the park experience and encourage appreciation of these natural wonders, she published her first book “Park Bagger - Adventures in the Canadian National Parks”, a collection of short stories of adventure and discover, and 120 photographs.

In 2016 Marlis was one of the first persons to visit Canada’s newest national park at the time, Qausuittuq, in Nunavut.  Exploring Qausuittuq National Park is a slide show version of chapter 5 of her book Park Bagger, taking her audience on a virtual voyage into the High Arctic. Through unique photographs and engaging story-telling, Marlis shares what it’s like to travel to Canada’s true north, to explore this extremely remote park, and to meet its endangered inhabitants.
