Opening on April 11, the Cannery's 2015 feature exhibit focuses on the ecology and cultural changes caused by industry and development along Northern BC’s "grease trails,” the First Nations’ eulachon oil trading routes. This exhibit will enhance understanding of the impact of industrial development on BC’s salmon bearing rivers; the Fraser, Skeena, Nass, and Stikine. Through interactive technology, visitors will be able to explore the changing resource use of each river and how these have impacted wildlife habitat over the past 100 years.
