With all public activities cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Friends of Fort George has launched an online e-learning platform for the Battle of Queenston Heights.

To help limit the spread of COVID-19, instead of providing school tours, participants will be granted access to the educational program, including a PowerPoint presentation with images, videos, discussion questions, fun facts, activity sheets and more.

“This project has been a real collaboration with past staff (who are now teachers), community members who donated their pictures and video footage for the program, and Parks Canada staff who provided their expertise,” said Amanda Gamble, executive director of the Friends of Fort George.

“Part of our mandate is to raise awareness for the importance of our historic sites and we hope that this helps people connect with our local history while staying at home”.

To access these materials the Friends of fort George is asking for a nominal donation, with all proceeds going to support programming and employment at Brock’s monument.

Contact the Friends of Fort George at 905-468-6621 or by email at admin@friendsoffortgeorge.ca for more information about the program.
