Gold(stream) Rush Programs
Prospector Penny Gr.4/5
Our most popular historical program is back at the Goldstream Nature House!
Experience gold rush fever as an authentic prospector jumps right out of history into Goldstream Park and recounts the tales of the BC Gold Rush. This Gold Rush of the 19th Century conceived the province of British Columbia and laid the foundation for the development that followed; making this an important subject for Social Studies.
One of a few women who defied the conventions of their time to become gold prospectors, Goldstream's Prospector is now defying the laws of time to meet your class! She will recount stories from the "Golden" days, demonstrate the use of gold panning equipment and lead the studens in a gold panning pursuit for Fool's gold.
Cost: MIinimum charge per class = $150.00 + GST. An extra $1/student for making bannock over the fire.
