The Sheep Are Coming!

Posted on May 31, 2018

We have some exciting public programs coming up this fall, including sourdough bread making, veggie fermentation, and Medicine Bag workshops. Click here to register!

Yes, the Fort Saskatchewan sheep are coming.  The famous flock will be arriving on Saturday, July 2nd, as a part of the Legacy Park Family Festival. Thanks to Kathy, our shepherdess, and Rocky, one of her best sheepdogs, you can see them as they parade through Fort Saskatchewan, and meet and mingle with them at Legacy Park.

The flock will be available for feeding and petting from Thursday-Sunday throughout the summer at the Fort Heritage Precinct in Peter T. Ream Historical Park. Our Who Was Here Before Us? programs that run throughout the summer will have a chance to meet them, see a herding demonstration, and feed them carrots on Thursdays and Fridays.

"The facilities we experienced were authentic and helped us gain a genuine understanding of what it was like at the Precinct over 100 years ago."
