The Bearspaw Historical Society holds a number of activities throughout the year such as tours of museums or heritage organizations, workshops on topics that will help community members learn to document, preserve, or commemorate aspects of history, dinners and presentations.

Dinner and Presentations

At least once a year the Society holds a dinner so that the members and invited guests can get together and visit. It may be a harvest dinner, a Christmas party, or we may just decide that it is time to celebrate. We also get to learn about some aspect of local history through a presentation after some of the dinners.
