We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed. For more details on our response to COVID-19 please click this banner.

    Where land, history, stories and dreams become one...  This program provides tangible context for key events of regional history and helps students connect with the past and each other.  There is a strong emphasis on First Nations culture, stories and perspectives of the cultural changes that came with the arrival of the Northwest Mounted Police and settlers.  

    Your group will hike with a park interpreter beneath the sandstone cliffs in the Archaeological Preserve to view a representative sampling of the rock art. We are happy to customize content to meet the needs of your students.
