School Tours & Programs

If you’re a teacher, why not invite us to speak to your class or come on a field trip? We have an active Education Outreach Program and encourage school groups and adult groups to come spend an afternoon with us. We are always happy to offer private tours during the week with advance notice.

To book any of the tours or presentations, please phone Gwendy Lamont, Education Outreach Coordinator, at 250-769-7735 or 250-681-5813.
