Red Deer real estate is surrounded by some of the most beautiful parts of Central Alberta, and the goal of the Waskasoo Environmental Education Society is to interpret and educate the Red Deer community about this natural environment and our cultural heritage. The WEES runs multiple different programs for all ages to attain this mission, so from Preschool Programs to birthday parties there’s something for every family depending on their interests. For instance, WEES runs the Historic Fort Normandeau which is a replica of the original, and every summer the live interpretative performances and events that are staged there are a favourite of families in the area. Red Deer real estate was once the land of three different cultures that came together.

Now the Fort and its Crossing stand as a commemoration of the First Nations, Metis, and European people who began the development of modern Central Alberta. Families who visit the Fort see history brought to life with entertaining, informative, and authentic live programs which celebrate all three of the founding cultures of Red Deer. Visitors learn to make food that the area settlers would have eaten, and can dance to First Nations or Metis music, enjoy an old-fashioned garden harvest, or eat haggis and toss the caber. For families living in Red Deer real estate, Fort Normandeau is a wonderful way to learn about history while making memories that will last a lifetime. Whether the family wants to have a picnic lunch in the picturesque Red Deer River Valley, or is looking forward to paddling canoes down the river just like the early settlers of the area did, there’s something for everyone at the Fort.
