Stewardship and management
Fort Walsh National Historic Site
Walk through the wooden gates into a living fort from the 1870s. Let the sound of the canon fire spark your imagination. Learn how Canadian law was imposed on the West, hear stories of rotgut whiskey runners and take part in a court room trial. Test your bartering skills at the trading post and find out the price of a buffalo robe. Walk in the footsteps of James Morrow Walsh and his NWMP troops, discover how peace was brokered with Sitting Bull in the aftermath of the battle of Little Big Horn.
Take a stroll through the Cypress Hills forest past fragrant lodge pole pines and white spruce. Challenge yourself on Saskatchewan’s toughest 5K run. Take time out with the family to learn traditional Métis crafts and find out about the fort’s connection to Canada’s famous RCMP Musical Ride.
