This month, we're launching two new exhibits at our Family Fun Day event on Saturday May 26th - "Foundations at the Howe Sound Decks", and "Howe Sound: Beauty Below". While both exhibits celebrate the beauty and nature of Howe Sound, Foundations also recognizes Britannia Mine's relationship with local waters over the years - the bad and the good.
Located on the newly restored Howe Sound Decks 40 feet above the Sea to Sky Highway, Foundations is a new, permanent, outdoor, open air exhibit. With breathtaking
panoramic views of Howe Sound, visitors can explore Britannia's colourful 114 year history and how mining has contributed to the community and province.
It also recognizes its environmental impacts on the region, the resulting remediation efforts, and the continued recovery of the Howe Sound area.
The exhibit features:
The exhibit opens Saturday May 26th during our Family Fun Day event celebrating BC Mining Month. It is a permanent exhibit and will remain open to the public year round.
