About Ancient Echoes

History, Mystery, and Fun

ANCIENT ECHOES INTERPRETIVE CENTRE is nestled at the junction of the Coalmine Ravine and the Eagle Creek and offers both indoor and outdoor tours of our Paleontology sites (dinosaur and fossil displays and dig), Prairie Grasslands Ecology (virgin prairie medicine and food plants, animals in the wild and taxidermy displays), and Indigenous History (petroglyphs, rock formations, effigies, archaeological dig, ceremonial circles, buffalo jump, food processing site, tool artifacts and pottery making displays). A permanent art exhibition by Metis artist, Jo Cooper, expresses a visual and oral story with “The Disappearance and Resurgence of the Buffalo”. Additionally, sculptures outside the centre stimulate the imagination as well as humour.

Ancient Echoes is currently operating under their summer hours, which run from May 16th to August 26th. This means we are open Tuesdays-Saturdays from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (closed Sunday, Mondays, and Stat Holidays). Bookings can be made by calling the Centre at 1-306-377-2045 or emailing anciente@sasktel.net. Our Valley View Tea Room is run by volunteers and is open Thursdays from 2:30- 4:30 p.m. 

Ancient Echoes is a popular site for School Tours throughout the year offering custom-designed programs for students of all ages in the areas of Aboriginal History, Paleontology, Ecology, and Archaeology.

Ancient Echoes also offers regular summer programs including traditional pottery making, drum making, ecology and paleontology hikes, full moon walks, educational and craft days for children, as well as numerous other “ project” days. A video of the ravine walk is available indoors for “rainy days”, or for those who do not wish to hike.
