The Crow Wing Trail and what it has to offer

Date: 

Monday, January 14, 2019

Presenter: 

Murielle Bugera, President of the Crow Wing Trail Association

Imagine being back in the mid-1800`s and what you would see as you are riding an ox cart. Tall grass prairie and pastures, crop lands and treed areas, wild flowers and rivers, and the rural communities grew from this land. Métis and First Nations people helped new immigrants learn to survive and thrive in this area of the province where Manitoba was born.
