The Maple Ridge Museum will host two walking tours to mark this year’s Heritage Week.
Heritage Week is an opportunity for the local heritage sector to organize events that would showcase local heritage and involve the public.
This year’s Heritage Week, themed “All Inclusive”, will run from February 21-27 this year and will see Maple Ridge residents have the chance to take two historic walks around the city led by the expert in local history and president of the Maple Ridge Historical Society, Erica Williams.
“Maple Ridge has a truly fascinating history, filled with stories of diverse cultural groups who have supported very successful local businesses and industries. Join us for a walking tour of downtown and learn more about the birth of our city!” said Shannon Macelli, the museum’s community engagement coordinator.

“When it comes to spring and summer, we have many exciting initiatives, programs and events in the planning stages. Even though COVID restrictions persisted, we successfully hosted many activities last summer that we were able to adapt to public health guidelines. We look forward to a busy and great year! said Macelli.
