Badlands Historical Centre Visit

On the last day of my takeover of Nathan's afternoon show, I went down for a hang at the Badlands Historical Centre.

Now, as a native Drumhellion, I am ashamed to admit I have never been here! The history they have packed in this buidling is amazing!

There is everything from dinosaur bones to handmade trains.

Gordon Taylor? The one the bridge is named after? Yeah, there is a memorial for him in there, saying how awesome of a guy he was!

The non-profit museum relies on volunteers to keep the place running, and they do an excellent job. Christine was working today, and she knew the answer to every question I asked her. That is dedication!

I had a great time being Nathan, and he is back tomorrow.

Talk to ya later!

A Ssssssensational Time

This is Jen and Ben. They loved Reptile World! They have Jose (the hands-on snake).

I got a chance to hang out at Reptile World today (July 12)!

It was such a great time, I learned a lot from keepers Shawn and Colleen, they were very friendly and let me behind the scenes to feed their 600-pound American Alligator, Fred!


Everyone I talked to highly recommends going there. The staff really know their stuff, and can answer any question you can think of.

"It's a great learning experience and you can see many different animals and how they interact to feeding and people, and how calm they all are," said a friendly girl I talked to named Dakota.

She loved it, I loved it, everyone I talked to said they loved it.

It really is worth a visit! Till next time.
