Organization Information

Mackie Lake House is a historic site. We offer free field trips for students that include time spent in an outdoor classroom called Fylton Forest exploring the relatively undisturbed flora and fauna, and a tour of the grand home on the property learning about the use of the land by the nomadic Syilx and then the British settlement of the area. Elementary students visit as part of a field trip with their class.
