The national park that I picked is Fundy national park located in New
Brunswick. It is part of the Atlantic Maritime ecozone which consists of the
Appalachians region and the coastal plains. I chose to represent the
Appalachians region on my poster and represented the four seasons (spring,
summer, fall and winter). The climate in this region is cooler summers and
warmer winters and a lot of precipitation. The vegetation in the Atlantic
Maritime includes deciduous, Boreal and Acadian forests which contain a
variety of different plant species such as coniferous and deciduous trees and
various types of moss. I included the Acadian forest in my poster which has
both coniferous and deciduous trees. The wildlife in this region includes
moose, deer, foxes, squirrels, various types of birds and fish species. I
included deer, foxes, birds (seagulls) and ducks in my poster.
Activities at Fundy national park in my poster include kayaking, exploring
trails in the forest and taking pictures of the famous Hopewell rocks while
visiting the beach. Other fun activities that visitors might enjoy are bird
watching, camping, sightseeing, renting boats and fishing, hiking and in the
winter, skiing or tobogganing.
Ecological integrity is demonstrated in my poster as all components of an
ecosystem (Atlantic Maritime) such as vegetation, climate, wildlife and
landforms are functioning and present in my poster. Every scene in my
poster contains ecological integrity for example my mountain scene
includes a landform (Appalachians), a climate (winter), wildlife (deer) and
vegetation (coniferous trees). The signs and small amount of visitors are
examples of how my park is protected.
