October 31 @ 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Students in Grades K to 5 are invited to join us for a field trip to the Fort Langley National Historic Site,
located at 23433 Mavis Avenue in Fort Langley. After reading “Helen’s Surprise”—the story of a family
who lived at Fort Langley along the Fraser River in the 1800s—your class will receive a letter from Helen inviting you to come explore where the story took place. Although Helen herself won’t be there,
facilitators dressed in period costume will help you discover how cultures change over time through a
series of mini-adventures: trying on costumes, feeling furs, watching the blacksmith at work, learning
about native plants, rolling barrels, and panning for gold.
