Glooscap Heritage Centre near Millbrook and visited with staff. This is a new institution on the provincial heritage scene located just off the highway outside Truro. It is easily found by going towards the giant figure of Glooscap on the grounds. The Centre is continuing to evolve and exapnsion plans include a second building to improve their events hosting capacity. On the heritage front, they are continually developing their programming and aside from workshops teaching Mi'kmaq skills have schools programming available aswell. Current plans include commemorative celebration in honour of Mi'kmaq veterans and the installation of a wall of honour. A project begun this past summer to landscape using plants native to the area will also contribute interpretation opportunities for explaining Mi'kmaq traditional land use.
