Parks Beyond Borders: High-Tech Visitor Center Will Earn Finland’s National Parks International Exposure

Parks Beyond Borders: High-Tech Visitor Center Will Earn Finland’s National Parks International Exposure | Finland | Scoop.it
Finland has twenty-five visitor centers to interpret a system of thirty-seven national parks from island archipelagos in the Baltic Sea to windswept alpine peaks above the Arctic Circle—but the country’s parks have never had a national gateway.
Ulla M. Saikku's insight:

Under construction right now not far from Helsinki, on the doorstep of Nuuksio National Park, the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia will be an entry point to Finland’s entire park system—and the full spectrum of the nation’s natural treasures. It’ll also showcase Finland’s high-tech take on environmental education and environmentally sustainable design.
