WATERSHED HISTORY EXHIBIT

The Museum presents an opportunity to learn about the significance of our watershed, which begins in Strathcona Provincial Park at Buttle Lake, and the role it plays in providing our community with potable drinking water, recreation and hydro electric power.  

The story of the watershed is a complicated one; people living and working in this area have tried to balance the needs of industry and resource gathering with the needs of environmental longevity and protection, especially since the time when the potential for hydro electric power was observed. 

Through a series of interpretive panels and an interactive touch-screen, visitors can learn the history of the watershed prior to industrial development and find out what stewardship initiatives have been undertaken in the Campbell River and its estuary in more recent years.

Museum staff are on hand at the John Hart Interpretive Centre off Brewster Lake Road 3 days a week. Call the museum to confirm hours (250) 287-3103.
