About Ancient Echoes

History, Mystery, and Fun

ANCIENT ECHOES INTERPRETIVE CENTRE is nestled at the junction of the Coal Ravine and the Eagle Creek and offers both indoor and outdoor tours of our Palaeontology sites (dinosaur and fossil displays and dig), Prairie Grasslands Ecology (virgin prairie medicine and food plants, animals in the wild and taxidermy displays), and First Nation's History (petroglyphs, rock formations, effigies, archaeological dig, teepee rings, 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. The Centre is open daily from May 7th to August 30th and offers ravine and indoor tours. Bookings can be made online or by calling the Centre at 306-377-2045. Our Tea Room is open every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from June to August 30th from 2:30-4:30 pm and on Fridays from 2:30 - 4:30 during the winter and spring season. 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, Ecology and Archeology.

Ancient Echoes also offers regular summer programs including traditional pottery making, drum making, ecology and palaeontology 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”.

Ancient Echoes has just recently added a beautiful art gallery space to their walls. Our new Prairie View Gallery offers numerous exhibits throughout the year of new and established artists and photographers.
