Prairie Settlers

This full day field trip will take place in Buffalo Pound Provincial Park in the Nicolle Homestead area.  The Nicolle family arrived in the area in 1881 with very little, first living in a tent, next in a log house, and then in 1903 had their stone home constructed for the grand sum of $357.  This house is still standing in the Nicolle Flats area.  The students will hike to the homestead site, explore the area and map the location of the house, barn, garden and water source.  Students will learn about the Nicolle's involvement with law and order in the area and how Mrs. Nicolle assisted the First Nations people.  Students will gain a better understanding of parts of the Indian Act of 1865 and it's affect on the local people. See below for Outdoor Field Trip Student Checklist.
