The Winterland EcoMuseum provides the public with approximately seven square kilometers of protected area that has been divided into four natural habitats. They include the Wetland, Forest, Aquatic, and Barren. A fifth habitat looks at the interaction of man with the other four habitats and has been labeled the Cultural Habitat. Each habitat offers visitors an opportunity to become familiar with the plants and animals that live there and the importance of the habitats to the Ecomuseum. The boardwalk provides an opportunity for people and groups of all ages and abilities to tour the site and experience the beauty it has to offer the public. The staff at the Ecomuseum is also very active out in the communities around the Burin Peninsula. Their presentation will inform listeners of the need for conservation of our habitats and the role of the Ecomuseum in the community. Guided tours can also be arranged at the museum upon request.
