Our Vision and Mission

The French acronym GUEPE stands for Groupe uni des éducateurs-naturalistes et professionnels en environnement (or the united group of nature educators and professionals in environmental sciences). We are a non-profit organization offering educational and professional services to youth and the general public in the field of natural and environmental sciences, as well as in outdoor recreation. By making nature more accessible to our clientele, we increase awareness and encourage the respect of biodiversity.

Thanks to our expertise in helping people discover, understand and experience nature by creating a unique and personalized experience for everyone, we bring humans closer to nature in order to make environmental protection an inclusive and inspiring social project.

GUEPE Offers Numerous Activities for All Audiences, All Year Round.

For over 30 years, passion, collaboration and rigor have allowed our team to adapt and design various projects and offer a wide range of activities that meet the needs of all our audiences, all year long, including:

• The facilitation of educational activities and field trips for school groups;
• The organization and facilitation of summer camps or sleepaway camps specialized in natural and environmental sciences;
• Nature interpretation activities for the general public in order to raise awareness about the protection of biodiversity, as well as outdoor and tourist activities with the perspective of sustainable development;
