The New Interpretive Centre

Before

Once rolling native prairie grassland meeting the banks of Redberry Lake – Mihkomin s√Ękahikan to the Cree Peoples. A sacred saline lake and traditional meeting place for Indigenous Peoples since time immemorial. After Treaty 6 was signed this land became productive agricultural land farmed by generations of Settlers including the Semkos. The ridges surrounding the lake contained many species of trees and plants including buffalo berries which gave the lake its name.

After

A new Interpretive Centre overlooking Redberry Lake with low impact geodesic domes and a common shower house for visitors from the around the world to immerse themselves in the pristine environment. A Bird Banding and Research centre for scientists from around the world to study Redberry Lake’s unique ecology. Sustainable, energy efficient and low impact. The site will maintain the existing biodiversity and restore the land with native trees and plants. All development will be set far enough back from existing forest to give space for wildlife and we will limit development to what is sustainable on the land.¬† Night sky preserve and quiet park principles will be implemented to limit noise and light pollution.
