Looking for something to do on Louis Riel Day? Why not take a trip back to a simpler time.

The University of Manitoba’s Bruce D. Campbell Farm & Food Discovery Centre is hosting a fun-packed day on Monday, where visitors will have the opportunity to churn cream into butter, bake some barley bannock, watch bees make honey and strap on snowshoes to walk through deep snow.

The activities run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Discovery Centre, located about 15 minutes south of Winnipeg on Highway 75 (Pembina Highway) at the University of Manitoba’s Glenlea Research Station.

Admission costs include guided tours through the exhibits every hour from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Adults are $5, youth 7-18 are $3.50, children under 6 are free, seniors are $3.50, and families are $14.50.
