At the training session our staff learned about over 75 different attractions all throughout Alberta. Many of these attractions have new and exciting activities planned for this summer. The Leduc # 1 Energy Discovery Center is starting their new Living Energy Initiative where they will be putting up solar panel as well as converting old oil wells into a geothermal system to help the building become carbon neutral.
The Reynolds Museum will be hosting a Night at the Movies, featuring old-time movies every Thursday evening starting on July 7.
The Telus World of Science is featuring The International exhibition of Sherlock Holmes running until the beginning of September. They have also created a new Science Garage where individuals of all age can participate in different science experiences and activities.
The Edmonton Valley Zoo has just recently opened their Arctic Shores exhibit, showcasing some amazing animals from the far south. In addition, they have a red panda enclosure and a brand new café.
If you would like to find out more information about the new attractions and activities throughout Alberta feel free to stop in at the Millet Visitor Information Center. If you are unable to come in you can also send us questions through Facebook and Twitter where we will try to answer within 24 hours. We are excited to be able to help out with all travel needs this summer.
