Walk the Ladysmith heritage treasure trail on BC Family Day

LDHS and LMS team up to provide a COVID safe family activity

The Ladysmith & District Historical Society (LDHS) and Ladysmith Maritime Society (LMS) and are presenting a family-fun Heritage Treasure Trail game on BC Family Day, Monday, Feb. 15.

This outdoor game will introduce families and individuals to heritage features around Ladysmith while taking a walk about town in a COVID safe manner. LDHS has prepared a Heritage Treasure Trail route map and Heritage Explorer decal that can be downloaded from the LDHS website, or they can be picked up at the Ladysmith Museum or Ladysmith Community Marina on Family Day.

Participants will have to decipher a series of rhyming clues to identify heritage objects along the trail. The clues will be released online, at the Ladysmith Museum, and the Ladysmith Community Marina on the morning of Family Day.

There are 33 features to identify along the trail. Once identified, participants are encouraged to take a photo or selfie with the feature to share on social media #heritageladysmith.

The trail starts at the Museum at 721 1st Ave., goes through the downtown core and down to the harbour area, ending at the Ladysmith Community Marina. Folks walking the trail are welcome to do the entire walk, or just portions of it. Participants can warm up outside the Marina’s Welcome Centre with a hot beverage and pick up a participant goodie bag, plus visit the incredible display of restored heritage wooden boats.
