It was in 1973 that Gros Morne National Park was created on the island of Newfoundland. A natural gem that is still relatively unknown, this site is home to natural wonders and an environment that certain reports from our archives allow us to discover.

Gros Morne National Park is, certainly, among the most beautiful in the entire network of national parks.

A quote from Yvon Leblanc, 1982

< p class="StyledImageCaptionLegend-sc-57496c44-2 sbxsP">Report by journalist André Laprise on Gros Morne National Park on the island of Newfoundland

On February 7, 1982, a report by journalist André Laprise on the show Green Weekhosted by Yvon Leblanc, took us to explore Gros Morne National Park.

Watching this report makes us realize that, sometimes, place names can be misleading.

The designation of Gros Morne National Park suggests that we find ourselves in a place of boring sadness.

It's quite the opposite. Gros-Morne has absolutely surprising landscapes.

Its geological formations are unique in the world.

The park contains three distinct types of forests inhabited by extremely rich flora and fauna.

The history and characteristics of its human settlement are completely original.

These are all elements that convinced UNESCO to include the Gros Morne National Park site on its World Heritage List in 1987.

Chronicle of Christian Milette returning from an expedition to Gros Morne National Park

March 12, 2009, the columnist of the show That’s life,Christian Milette, is interviewed by host Philippe Schnobb.

Christian Milette returns from a ski and snowshoe excursion in Gros Morne National Park.

Located on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland, Gros Morne is partially formed from the island extension of the continental Appalachians and is known there as the Tablelands.

We almost have the impression, when viewing the images reported by Christian Milette, of finding ourselves in the Canadian Rockies rather than on an island located in the middle of the North Atlantic like Earth is -New.

Walking through the park in winter is quite sporty, but the landscapes at the top of the mountains are breathtaking.

Three years later, columnist Christian Milette returns to Gros-Morne, but this time in summer.

He returns from his exploration of the Tablelands with a report that he presents to C'est ça la vie hosted by Marcia Pilote on October 18, 2012.

In this report, we meet Cédric Davignon, who is a guide interpreter at Gros Morne National Park.

Passionate about geology, Cédric Davignon teaches tourists the exceptional value of the rock formations that exist in the park.

These allow a better understanding of the very ancient history of the creation of the island of Newfoundland millions of years ago.

The guide also explains the richness of the fauna and flora that live in the park.

He focuses in particular on the pitcher plant, a carnivorous plant which thrives in particular in the park's peat bogs and which has become the floral emblem of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
