This is part of a series of caches for the Prairie Trails Museum Network. It is on the grounds of the Prairie Wind and Silver Sage Museum in Val Marie. It is open most days, so I encourage you to check it out. There are snacks and coffee available inside. It is a small blue container with a few Grasslands Park items in it, as well as a logbook and pencil. Take care not to arouse suspicion from the kids at the school on the other side of the museum. It is also a part of the SaskSkies Geotour.
Located in southwest Saskatchewan, the SaskSkies Geotour will take you on a journey through the vast and varied landscapes of the Cypress Hills Destination Area. Walk through native prairie grasslands where bison still roam in Grasslands National Park. Visit the forested hills of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park and Fort Walsh, the birthplace of Canada’s Northwest Mounted Police. Discover natural wonders, the old west, dinosaurs, fabulous food, and how to fly through the trees (though not necessarily in that order). See for yourself why we say – “It’s time to explore.”
