The Ancient Echoes Interpretative Center located in Herschel was the recipient of National Trust Ecclesiastic Award this year. This award is given to those who successfully sustain and utilize their facility while benefiting the community over the course of 10 years or longer.
Three members of the board attended the ceremony that was held in Fredericton at the Beaverbrook Gallery. There they accepted the award on behalf of the Ancient Echoes Interpretative Center.
Brittany Gilchrist, Executive Director at Ancient Echoes, said, "They are so grateful to all the staff and volunteers who have helped over the years. Without them it wouldn't have been possible to achieve such an award."
The Ancient Echoes Center is located at the junction of the Coal Ravine and Eagle Creek. There you can tour indoor and outdoor Paleontology sites during the spring and summer. During the winter month they offer indoor tours by appointment.
A new exhibit will be on display starting January 11th. The display will feature the work of Kathy Richards and the women of the Plenty Craft Nights.
