AESES would like to invite all our CCU friends to join us for a “Welcome to Winnipeg” event on Saturday, October 21 in the early evening just after the tour at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Winnipeg is home to the fantastic FortWhyte Alive Interpretive Centre housing a wonderful taxidermy display of wildlife, freshwater aquarium, prairie soil diorama, a local watershed and a live exhibit. In addition, prior to the onset of migration, they host events showcasing geese as they come together and settle for the night. A truly mesmerizing event.
Here are the details:
– School bus to leave Hotel Fort Garry about 4:30 p.m. with a second pick-up at the Human Rights Museum around 4:45 or so (to be confirmed)
– Arrival at FortWhyte Alive about 5:45 p.m.
– Presentation inside the Interpretive Centre at 6:00 p.m. sharp
– Geese displaying their Settling for the Night activities at sunset (est. 6:27 p.m.)
– Bus to depart FortWhyte Alive about 7:30 p.m. and return to the Hotel Fort Garry.
During the time that we are at FortWhyte, attendees are welcome to wander through the Interpretive Centre, the displays, aquarium, live exhibit and shop for some local wares at the gift shop. In addition, there will be food in the form of a smokie hot dog, popcorn/chips, cookie/brownie and a pop/coffee/hot chocolate (coupons for these, and admission, are provided by AESES). They also have a beer/wine cart and bannock over an open fire for cash only purchase.
We hope you will consider attending.
Please email Laurie Morris by Thursday, October 12, 2017 if you would like to attend.
