Jasper through the ages
A History of the people and events that shaped Jasper. Learn about the fascinating history of Jasper and the Athabasca Valley from centuries past to present day. From the original indigenous residents through the fur trade, the early explorers and outfitters, the railway, our unique and exceptional role during the second world War to our current community; the history of Jasper is one of courage, hardship, colorful characters, remarkable adventures and the strength of the human spirit.
Adventures with Greg
Greg Van Tighem, recently retired Jasper Fire Chief will entertain you with tales of his many adventures throughout Jasper National Park and beyond. For over 40 years, summer and winter, Greg has been exploring the highways, backcountry byways and waterways of Jasper and area. Greg has solo-cycled the full extent of both Jaspers Highways 93 and 16 as well as numerous other ‘off the beaten path’ adventures, including the Dempster Highway from Dawson City YT to Tuktoyaktuk NWT on the winter Ice Road.
Come join me in the evening by the fire, make yourself comfortable and be prepared to engage in conversation about Indigenous culture, with stories, drumming, and songs. I will teach you songs, some beautiful phrases in Cree! You will go away fulfilled after this spiritual adventure!
Learn about the habits and rituals of Jasper’s original inhabitants. Our interpretive presenter will describe the characteristics of the wide range of animals you can expect to see in the park at various times of the year. You will have the opportunity to handle a variety of horns, antlers, furs, skulls and claws to help you to more fully appreciate these magnificent creatures.
