Once you receive your first clue, work at your own pace to explore the homestead and find the next step. You’ll work together to solve puzzles and follow clues, but if you get stuck, our staff is always willing to help!

This self-guided event, which we would describe as an outdoor escape room, starts at 11:00 AM, and you have until 4:00 PM to finish - don’t worry, the staff will be on hand to help with hints and pointers. Magnifying glasses are optional!

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind, and make your way up Highway 97, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.

Composting 101
Wednesday August 28, 2019  |  6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
REAPS, 1950 Gorse Street

Composting is the ultimate in recycling. In what other endeavor can we take things meant for the garbage -- those banana peels, apple cores, fall leaves, weeds, and animal bedding -- and turn it into something that will literally transform our garden. Pretty amazing stuff! While there are some rules to follow when learning how to compost, rest assured that they're pretty basic, and that, in the end, no matter how many "mistakes" you make, compost just happens.
