Premier Stelmach Opens Centennial Project

In late August we were honored to have Premier Ed Stelmach, and Little Bow MLA Barry McFarland officially open the Alberta Centennial Natural History Centre. This project is the culmination of four years of planning, designing and finally constructing the most significant and largest addition to the centre to date.

In his address Premier Stelmach congratulated southern Alberta leaders and volunteers for their vision in creating such a high quality tourist attraction and educational centre. He stated “the project is one of the best investments of an Alberta Centennial grant that I have seen”.

Located at the north end of our site, the natural history centre features large windows wrapping around a massive eagle aviary, exhibit space, meeting rooms and an administrative office. For the official opening, the building featured a magnificent display of nature photography courtesy of Lethbridge Photography Club members which will remain on display throughout 2008.

We would like to give a special note of thanks to Little Bow MLA Barry McFarland, who is an avid supporter of the centre, for helping us secure provincial funding for this Alberta Centennial project that will benefit all of Southern Alberta.
