The dates have been set for Summerland Museum’s annual community tours.

A total of eight tours are offered: four Fur Brigade Tours through Garnett Valley, three Prairie Valley Tours and a Peach Orchard Cemetery Tour.

All tours start at 9 a.m. to avoid the heat of summer days.

There is a cost for the tours, but discounts are given to Museum Society members and members of the Okanagan Historical Society.

The Fur Brigade tour dates are Aug. 7, and Aug. 20 and will include discussion of First Nations history, the use of Garnett Lake as one of the important encampment sites and the establishment of the settlement of Priest, the first non-native settlement in British Columbia that wasn’t fortified.

The Prairie Valley tour uses the Trans Canada Trail. The dates are Aug. 1, and Aug. 21.

This tour describes Summerland’s unique geology, First Nations history, and the numerous famous people who owned land in Prairie Valley.

There is a limit of 15 people per tour.

Please phone the Summerland Museum (250-494-9395) for more information and reservations.
