Ladysmith Heritage Treasure Trail Game
February 15, 2021
The 2021 BC Heritage Week theme poses the question “Where do you find heritage?” The Ladysmith Maritime Society and Ladysmith & District Historical Society are presenting a family-fun Heritage Treasure Trail game on BC Family Day Feb 15, that attempts to answer that question. The outdoor game will introduce families and individuals to heritage features around Ladysmith. The Heritage Treasure Trail route map, and Heritage Explorer decal can be picked up at the Ladysmith Museum, the Welcome Centre at Ladysmith Community Marina, the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, or printed here (see below) or from their websites.
The route starts at the Ladysmith Museum, where participants will be given a rhymed clue to identify the first heritage feature. Once found, participants are encouraged to take a photo or selfie at the site to share on social media #heritageladysmith. There will be 10 features to find with clues located sequentially at the sites. The trail goes through the downtown core and to the harbour area, where it ends at the Ladysmith Community Marina. Prizes for trail completion will be awarded, and participants can warm up at the marina’s Welcome Centre with a hot beverage and goodies and visit the display of heritage wooden boats restored by LMS volunteers. So put on your “explorer” hat and join the fun.
Heritage slide shows and videos will be available all week on both society’s Facebook and websites to entertain and educate.
