This past weekend, the CBC included The Fort Heritage Precinct as part of its video review of historic places in Alberta to see this summer. The clip talks about all of the amazing things you can find here at the Fort Heritage Precinct: the sheep, Sam Steele, and why the fort brought law and order to the west and created the town of Fort Saskatchewan.

"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
