Fields of Dreams: Our Farming History

Horses Farming HistorySaturday, May 2nd to Saturday, October 10th, 2015

The indelible spirit and unwavering determination of early farmers and homesteaders will be celebrated in this exhibit which will focus on the early farming history of the Okotoks area. The exhibit opens in the spring, just in time for planting season, and continues right up to the Thanksgiving weekend when farmers are harvesting their crops.

A Sustainable Society

International-Museum-DaySaturday, May 2nd to Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The theme for the 2015 International Museum Day (May 18) is “Museums for a Sustainable Society.” We will turn the day into a temporary exhibit which will explore the history of living within our means — from the depression to Okotoks’ sustainable vision – with a goal of inspiring change. One of the most important contemporary challenges shared by people all over the world is to adapt new ways of living and developing within the limits of the environment. This exhibit will promote public awareness about the need for a society that is less wasteful, more cooperative and uses resources in a way that respects the environment.
