WHO WAS HERE BEFORE US?

PROGRAMS AVAILABLE IN AUGUST AT THE FORT HERITAGE PRECINCT

Openings in August are available for the Fort Heritage Precinct's Who Was Here Before Us? program. This full day program, offered annually in June, July, and August to elementary-aged children, allows participants to enjoy all that the Fort Heritage Precinct has to offer. The program includes interactive tours of the Historic Village and the North West Mounted Police Fort, four hands-on activity stations, old-fashioned home-made ice cream tasting, and a visit to Fort Saskatchewan's famous flock of sheep – complete with carrots for the sheep to nibble on!

During the summer, Who Was Here Before Us? programs make fantastic day trips for community groups, child care centres, and anyone else who is looking to provide elementary-aged children with a fun and engaging way to learn about Fort Saskatchewan's history.


We hope to see you this summer at the Fort Heritage Precinct!
