Read on to see what’s to learn, see and do in the Northwest Zone:
Celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with your friends at Cultus Lake (BC) on September 27. While the Canadian Thanksgiving is traditionally celebrated on the second Monday of October, Cultus Lake is bringing out the turkey and fixings a bit early to not only celebrate the year’s harvest and blessings, but to also say thanks for a wonderful summer camping season.
If you’re planning to visit our Seaside Preserve (OR) the last weekend in September, make sure to keep September 27 open to receive free admission to the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum. As part of Museum Day Live, sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine, visitors who have downloaded a free ticket from the website at www.smithsonianmagazine.com/museumdaylive receive free admission for two to the museum that features historical exhibits of the area.
Learn how the pioneers lived and work at Washington’s Duvall Heritage Festival, September 27. Located less than 10 miles from the Thunderbird Preserve (WA), the event will have blacksmith demonstrations, antique tractors, butter churning and folk music. Tour a restored loggers’ bunk house or dance to the music of Tinker’s Dram, a contra and square dance group. For more information visit www.duvallhistoricalsociety.org/HeritageFestival.
