    Where land, history, stories and dreams become one...  This program provides tangible context for the issues and problems that arise with cultural contact and collision. Strong emphasis is placed on First Nations culture, stories, and perspectives of the changing Canadian landscape. There is discussion of how the westward migration of Europeans impacted the lives of the First Nations people of this region. 

    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.
