The Sheep Are Coming!

Posted on May 31, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that each class attending one of our History Centre programs during the 2019/2020 school year will receive a discount of $105.93! Thank you to our sponsors at the Edmonton & District Historical Society, the Phyllis Arnold Learning Fund, and at Nutrien! For more details, please contact the Programs Coordinator at museumprograms@fortsask.ca.

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 leaders of each session were informative and engaged the students. They were well prepared and really made the program interesting!"
