The Cape Jourimain Interpretive Centre is a state-of-the-art eco-facility located directly behind the main Entry Pavilion. To lessen its environmental impact, the centre employs a number of green technologies including a geothermal heat pump, composting toilets, rainwater collection and grey water recycling, and solar panels. Inside,  you’ll find an array of public amenities including an extensive exhibit hall, a scenic observation tower, and the scrumptious Iceboat Landing Restaurant.

Exhibit Hall

The interactive displays in the exhibit hall provide background and context about the wildlife, the ever-changing coastal ecosystems, and the human history of the area — including the rugged iceboats that ferried people for 100 years between Cape Jourimain and Prince Edward Island.

 

World Class Bird Carvings

Featuring more than 20 world-class bird carvings by renowned carver Jim Edsall, the Cape Jourimain exhibit hall provides a multi-layered look at the natural and cultural history of this coastal region.
