/R E P E A T -- Media Opportunity - Parks Canada's Youth Ambassadors help you discover our country's treasures on Canada Parks Day/

OTTAWA, July 16, 2014 /CNW/ - With Canada Parks Day coming, Saturday July 19, we offer you a special opportunity to interview Parks Canada's Youth Ambassadors.

This past May, Parks Canada announced the two new Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors, Lindsay Little and George Woodhouse. In their role as Youth Ambassadors, these two 24 year olds will explore some of Canada's most unique and interesting places first-hand – biking, kayaking, hiking and reliving history – and share these experiences with youth in their communities and at Parks Canada locations.

As part of their mission, Lindsay, from Stirling, Ontario, and George, from Owen Sound, Ontario, will be roaming the country and sharing their vision through social media with young adults. 

Lindsay and George have already been to several locations in Canada and will discuss the challenges they face as well a how they want young Canadians relate to nature.

Meet our two lively ambassadors by viewing the following clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGw5rtuLpN8&list=UUzJRhTw3KVtDlcdNz33eDMQ
