A Walk in the Wilderness

We would like to announce that on June 9th – 11th, we will be hosting a celebration of the thinking and wonderings of our community’s youngest citizens. A Walk in the Wilderness is an Early Years Community Project that invites all participating groups (over 50 educators from childcare and Kindergarten classrooms, and their families) to venture outside and discover what captures the children’s imaginations. 

The results of their wilderness experiences will be represented in our exhibit. At 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 9th, families, and community members are invited for the kickoff of this three-day event. Come join us for refreshments and the opportunity to see the many wonderful ways the children have chosen to express their ideas and theories, as part of their involvement in this project. 

Everyone is welcome to visit, at no cost! Hope to see you there!

During the Second World War German prisoners of war were brought to the Lake of the Woods area to cut wood for the local mills.  Many of the prisoners enjoyed their time in the Canadian wilderness, and a number of them immigrated to Canada when the war ended.
