We're working remotely...

The Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre team is working remotely through the 2020-2021 academic year. We remain committed to researching, preserving, and - most importantly - sharing the natural and built histories of the Lakeshore Grounds with you. 

What are we up to? We are focused on growing our digital offerings so that you can experience our local history from home. Click on one of the boxes below to explore these resources - and be sure to check back regularly as we continue to add new material. 

As always, we welcome your thoughts, questions, ideas, and creativity. We can be reached by email (info@lakeshoregrounds.ca) or on social media (@LakeshoreGrnds on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
