The northern lights
Stepping onto the site of the Negrych Pioneer Homestead is like being transported in time and space, from 21st century Manitoba, to 19th century Ukraine. In 1897, Wasyl and Anna Negrych and their seven children left their home in the Carpathian Mountains of Western Ukraine to make a new life in Manitoba.
Visitors to the corner park at Railway Avenue and Alexander Street in Treherne will come away surprised and charmed by the small collection of unusual buildings located there.
The story of how Flin Flon got its name dates back to the year 1914. Prospector Tom Creighton and his escort, local trapper David Collins, were exploring the northern frontiers of Manitoba in search of ore.
With its tremendous wealth of waterways and unbridled natural beauty, Manitoba is home to any number of exciting canoe adventures. Whether you are seasoned paddler, or have simply grown tired of circling the lake, take full advantage of the crisp fall weather to challenge yourself and the province’s white water channels before the onset of winter.
The fall is a great time to explore Manitoba and discover the beauty of the province as the temperatures turn cooler. For bird lovers, the fall migration brings a variety of waterfowl to the province's marshes, including Oak Hammock, Netley, Delta and Big Grass marshes. For lovers of great food, communities across the province play host to a great fall tradition – the fall supper. And for lovers of art (and great deals!), arts and crafts sales are a browser's delight as Manitoba artisans present their creations – just in time for the holiday season. See you in Manitoba this fall.
