Canada Post heads for the wilds with Terra Nova National Park stamp

On July 6, Canada Post will issue a domestic rate stamp to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Terra Nova National Park, a natural preserve that defines Newfoundland and Labrador today as much as the retreating glaciers did so many millions of years ago.

Terra Nova is a 400-square-kilometre section of the 2000-kilometre long Appalachian Mountain System that is located in the Avalon Zone of interior Newfoundland. It boasts more than 500 species of plants classified into six forests, three barrens, and ten wetland communities. Seventy per cent of the park's land is composed of boreal forest, dominated by black spruce and balsam fir, while wooded areas in the more sheltered valleys host stands of poplar, alder, and red maple.
