FORT MACLEOD, AB – You can start going to back to visit some of Alberta’s historic sites this month.
As part of the stage two of the province’s summer re-opening plan, museums and archives can open to the public at reduced visitor capacity.
The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre in the Crowsnest Pass re-opens June 16th and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump near Fort Macleod opens again as of June 21st.
All these provincial historic sites will be following guidelines to keep people safe.
