Our building will re-open in 2021. Lots to do and see online in the meantime. Let’s stay in touch!
Who we are
Prairie Wind & Silver Sage is Val Marie’s provincially recognized EcoMuseum, offering a variety of services, including:
Our museum highlights the unique character of Grasslands, Val Marie, and the surrounding area through a combination of artifacts, mapping, photography, sound, and stories, incorporating historical, environmental, and cultural appreciation of both the land and the community. Expect to be engaged!
Prairie Wind & Silver Sage has two galleries, showcasing the work of local and regional artists, who offer their interpretation of prairie culture and the Grasslands ecosystem. Exhibitions change each year, with one featured in the Cloakroom Gallery, and the other in the Museum Gallery.
Staff and volunteers have worked hard over the years to create and maintain garden spaces around the Schoolhouse and featuring indigenous species of grasses and flowers. Take the time to explore the grounds and brush up on your plant ID skills before going into the Park.
Coffee Bar, Book Store & Gift Shop
