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. Come for a hike on the Falcon Creek trail to discover how one man’s life was changed forever. Be sure to bring study hiking shoes and drinking water.

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. Try your hand at making this Whiteshell favourite over a campfire – we’ll supply all the ingredients! Be sure to bring a bowl for mixing and a mug for hot chocolate.

Interpretive events are free for everyone to attend! Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult to all events. Events begin promptly as scheduled. For more information, please call the Park Interpreter’s office at 204-369-3157 or email Adam.Collicutt@gov.mb.ca.
