A Blast From the Past! Archaeology  Tour of Fish Creek Provincial Park

Saturday, October 4th from 2-4:30pm

Did you know that the Fish Creek valley was once lakefront property?
Fish Creek Provincial Park has between 8,500 and 13,000  years of human history and archaeological evidence, ranging from First Nations societies, NWMP, homesteading and ranching. 

Join Friends guide Drew McKibben to tour Fish Creek Provincial Park from the Bow Valley Ranch to Bebo Grove in our open-air electric minibus, and learn about the history of the Glenn, Hull, Burns, Bebo and Hone families, as well as the archaeological evidence they have left behind. 

$25 per person for this 2 ½ hour tour, space is limited to 8 people, so register early!.

Meet in the picnic area beside the red barn in the Bow Valley Ranch parking lot.  And remember to dress for the weather, as we are entering our cooler Fall season.

Drew McKibben is a published writer, storyteller and researcher, as well as an accomplished singer-songwriter and journalism coach to elementary school children. His work has been published in many newspapers and magazines, including the Calgary Herald, Backpacker, Beautiful British Columbia and Alberta Venture.

*Please note that if you experience mobility issues and are in need of physical support getting on and off the minibus, please call us before you register to discuss how we can make this a successful outing for you.*
