Oil Museum of Canada PA Day Event: Meet Our Wild Neighbours!

Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Oil Springs, ON – Oil Museum of Canada, National Historic Site, is inviting local students, families and members of the public to join us for our first PA Day event of 2020, Meet Our Wild Neighbours!
Join us on Friday, January 31, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for family-friendly activities and an interactive presentation with Heaven’s Wildlife Rescue. The presentation will give visitors a chance to meet Oil Springs Ollie, our famous weather-predicting groundhog, and some critters from Heaven’s Wildlife Rescue.
Visitors will learn about groundhogs and other critters that frolic around Oil Springs and how they benefit the local environment. Heaven’s Wildlife Rescue will discuss some current dangers to wildlife, solutions to reduce these dangers, and ways we can help local wildlife in our everyday lives. A 30-minute question and answer session will take place following the presentation, at approximately 11:30 a.m.
After the presentation by Heaven’s Wildlife Rescue, we invite visitors to take part in family-friendly activities at the Museum like story time and critter crafts. We are hoping Oil Springs Ollie does not predict an early spring, because we will have snowshoes available for guest to trek the Museum grounds and look for animal tracks in the snow.
The Oil Museum of Canada is located at 2423 Kelly Road in Oil Springs. Regular museum admission rates apply for this event. Snowshoe rental is included as part of regular admission prices. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for seniors and students, $3.00 for children and $15.00 for families. Children four and under are free.
The Oil Museum of Canada, National Historic Site, tells the story of Lambton County’s important contributions to the development of the world’s oil industry. Central to the Oil Heritage Conservation District, the museum benefits local residents and visitors by increasing their understanding and appreciation of this unique industrial heritage area.
