Members of Burlington’s Heritage Advisory Committee have put together several activities in honour of Heritage Week, which will be taking place from Aug. 2 to 8.
Throughout the week, the committee has planned events that celebrate aspects of Burlington’s heritage and have worked with several local organizations including the Burlington Historical Society, Royal Botanical Gardens, Burlington Public Library, Burlington Museums, United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada – Burlington, Freeman Station, Halton Black History Awareness Society, Heritage Services – Halton Region and David Craig of History Pix.
The informative sessions will give residents the opportunity to learn more about events, issues and sites that have shaped the City of Burlington and Canada as a whole.
The activities include an online hearth demonstration from Museums Burlington at Ireland House Museum, a bike tour of heritage sites in Aldershot and a virtual presentation from Dr. David Galbraith, Head of Science at Royal Botanical Gardens about the City’s Honour Roll of Trees.
Additionally, they will include a virtual Curator Talk on ceramics, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Burlington and a digital Doors Open Burlington: Behind the Door, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the operation of some local businesses.
