Volunteers Elsie Martin, Lynne Holland, Deron Holland, and Bonnie Martin pack animal footprint kits. ( supplied)

Volunteers and museum staff had a fun time packing our animal footprint kits this week. These take-home kits, sponsored by Burger King Fort St. John, include a fun fact sheet about local wildlife and their footprints, a matching activity, and an opportunity to make your own animal footprints in salt dough. Burger King has also included a coupon for a free treat! We have 100 kits available at the museum starting Friday, April 14th, as long as supplies last. These kits are recommended for ages 3-12.

Now that the footprint kit prep is behind us, we’re looking forward to our next event – our first-ever Newcomers Story Night on Friday, April 28, at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum (9323 100th Street – next to Centennial Park). Anyone who considers themselves new to Fort St. John and area is most welcome to attend. We’ll be sharing stories of past newcomers to the area, both joys and challenges. Anyone attending is welcome to share their experiences (optional). Learn about newcomer programs in Fort St. John. Tour the museum and enjoy coffee, tea, and refreshments. This is a free event.

Looking for a great class field trip? We’re busy booking for our programs, scavenger hunts, and guided tours. We offer curriculum-based programs on the fur trade and wild animals as well as educational programs on dinosaurs, marine dinosaurs, one-room schools, rodents, and more. Our guided tours can emphasize a theme your class is studying. We offer outdoor scavenger hunts in our historic buildings as well as indoor scavenger hunts, a dinosaur scavenger hunt, and a then-and-now scavenger hunt. For more information, visit or contact Heather at 250-87-0430.
