River Valley Exhibit

Discover Lethbridge's unique environments – from the grasslands, to the coulees, to the cottonwood forest, and the Oldman River. This foundational exhibit will help you understand the diversity of life our region supports!

The central feature of this exhibit is the Oldman River. Visitors are taken on a journey from the headwaters into the Lethbridge valley.

The exhibit explores the unique qualities of our river valley and what makes this place so special.

The exhibits are designed to captivate visitors of all ages. Our hope is that after engaging with these exhibits, our visitors will go outside and experience the river valley in a whole new way with a new awareness and appreciation.

The City of Lethbridge acknowledges that we are gathered on the lands of the Blackfoot people of the Canadian Plains and pays respect to the Blackfoot people past, present and future while recognizing and respecting their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship to the land. The City of Lethbridge is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
