(If you sign up, but can't attend, please have the COURTESY to CANCEL your attendance BEFORE the list closes by clicking on "Cancel attendance," text me if after [but still BEFORE the event]. As a consul, I am a volunteer. It takes time and effort to organize these events. It's not fun waiting around for no shows. Repeated offenders are reported to InterNations headquarters.)

The list will close Saturday morning.

Known as the birthplace of British Columbia, join us for a tour of Fort Langley National Historic Site, a Hudson's Bay trading post from the Protected content . As part of the Canada150 celebrations, admission is free in Protected content . They will start charging again in Protected content . So let's go now.

"Rising from the mist of the Fraser River, the palisades of Fort Langley stand tall. Inside the walls, rough-hewn timber buildings recreate the rugged Protected content . See where Hudson’s Bay Company fur traders mingled with California gold prospectors and hear First Nations interpreters tell century-old tales. Feel the blast of the musket fire, pan for gold dust dreams and dress up to play a historic trading boss."

The Story of the Salmon Walk: A Kwantlen Walking Tour (starts at noon)
"Hear the story of a community pulling together during salmon season to harvest and prepare salmon for food and for export. Experienced storyteller Fern Gabriel of Kwantlen First Nation will lead you on a one-hour tour on the grounds of the fort. The tours will beginProtected content will feature the beautiful sculptures crafted by Kwantlen artist Drew Atkins, through the grove of trees outside the fort and will conclude on the fort grounds."

Much of this is outdoors. So dress appropriately with comfortable walking shoes.
