About Stamp

La Mauricie National Park in Quebec was created in 1970 to preserve a sample of the Canadian Shield. The park contains the eroded remnants of Precambrian mountains, dotted with lakes and rivers left by the last Ice Age. It is located in a transition zone between the coniferous boreal forest and the deciduous forest of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The park shelters more than 150 species of birds, many species of fish, and several mammals - especially beaver and otter, whose numbers have grown because the trapping of animals is prohibited in the park. The stamp design, by Quebec artist Lauréat Marois, shows Lake Wapizagonke, a popular site for canoe-camping. William Tibbles of Toronto provided the typography.
