The W Files Guided Hike Saturday, July 30, 2016 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Location: Falcon Creek Self-guiding Trail Falcon Lake is home to one of the strangest UFO stories in the world.

Voyageur Bannock Bake Campfire Talk Sunday, July 31, 2016 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Location: Whiteshell Natural History Museum. Do you have what it takes to be a voyageur like La Verendrye? These earliest explorers paddled across the wilderness in the glory days of the fur trade. Bannock, an easy to make bread, was a staple food of voyageurs.
