Prairie Wind & Silver Sage is Val Marie’s provincially recognized ecomuseum, offering a variety of services, including:
ECOMUSEUM — Our museum highlights the unique character of Grasslands, Val Marie, and the surrounding area through a combination of artifacts, mapping, photography, sound, and stories, incorporating historical, environmental, and cultural appreciation of both the land and the community. Expect to be engaged!
COFFEE BAR — Enjoy a cup of well-brewed espresso and home made treats for your coffee break, breakfast bagels and eggs to start your morning, or get together with a friend before or after a park tour. Internet access available.
BOOKSTORE — One of the best selections of titles of a regional nature you’ll find anywhere. Up-to-date and diverse. Books for all ages.
GIFT & CRAFT ITEMS — With quality crafts and gifts as well as locally-made products and other items that make perfect remembrances — for yourself or others. There is something for every age.
ART GALLERIES — Two galleries, each with an exhibition related to the region. Exhibitions change seasonally.
PUBLIC PROGRAMS — Every year we host a number of public programs interpreting our mandate, at the Little Brick Schoolhouse and in the community. Watch the News and Events page on our website for information.
PRAIRIE GARDEN — Staff and volunteers have worked hard over the years to create garden spaces featuring indigenous species of grasses and flowers.
