New exhibit for Charlie Lake opens at Museum

Many activities for learning.

The Lake Next Door exhibit officially opened at the Fort St John North Peace Museum on May 18, and will be open until September 15.

The Charlie Lake Conservation Society (CLCS) was able to put this temporary exhibit together, capturing the remarkable history of this lake next door using photographs, sounds, interactive activities, stories and more.

The exhibit consists of many activities for learning, such as the beaver lodge which was constructed from driftwood and can be climbed inside of, for reading books or just relaxing. Another activity was the ice fishing hut, complete with stars and bats in the sky.

The biodiversity of Charlie Lake is amazing, with a wide range of microorganisms to fish, birds, and mammals. One of the activities focuses on letting the viewer use a magnifying glass to inspect Charlie Lake waters much closer.

The Fort St John North Peace Museum continues to find ways to showcase our wonderful history here in the North, with the help of local initiatives.
