The four 1:50,000 scale topographical maps encompassing the park may also be purchased at the centre.

A green and hardy building

The beautiful building itself is worth a visit to see how it was designed to withstand its harsh and remote northern environment, reduce it's environmental impact and maximize the energy from the sun.
