Find Your Spirit
A short boardwalk trail from the interpretation centre leads to the Spirit Garden. This is dedicated as a place for reflection on the lives of the Beothuk peoples, their culture, and the impact first contact had on them. It is a place of healing and reconciliation where you may find your own spirit. The Beothuk often hung tokens from trees & visitors are encouraged to leave their own offering to honour the Beothuk. You can collect suitable natural materials in the centre to make your own.
