Cancelled – Parc Omega Trip

Parc Omega modified

A SWOPA trip to Parc Omega is being organized for the end of February.

If you are interested, please complete the brief survey that is available to the right of this.  If you are reading this on your phone, you may need to look under “menu” “special offers”..

Omega Park is a wildlife park where one can experience and observe wild Canadian nature.  It is an opportunity to see our fauna, history, heritage and the different culture of our First Nations.  It is about an hour east of Ottawa and has landscapes where animals and history cohabit in an entirely natural environment.

Imagine going on this outing and spending less than $300 (including deposit) for accommodations (double occupancy), food for 2 days, entrance fee and bus with a guide at Parc Omega!  The only thing to be added to this will be your gas.  And if you can carpool, that would be divided too.  Once you register by February 7th and pay your deposit(e-transfer to jfanceyphotography@gmail.com), Jale will send you an email with the names of the hotel/motels info, as well as directions via google maps.

If you have any questions. please email Jale at jfanceyphotography@gmail.com
