Murder in Belfountain? Group of 7 views? Indigenous artifacts? Spot the trout in the river?

The Belfountain Heritage Society invites you to experience the West Credit River like never before through a series of vignettes created along the river’s edge depicting the geology, the area’s earliest human inhabitants and the brook trout ecosystem.

Do you know which Group of Seven members painted in Belfountain more than 100 years ago? Discover the landscapes that inspired these iconic Canadian artists to capture the pristine natural beauty of this area.

Watch Plein-air artist, Kayla Jackson, continue the Go7 tradition of painting outdoors. Local potter & artist, Wendy Mitchell from Treehouse Pottery will be there with her one-of-a-kind Earth Coins made from local clay as well as her distinctive pottery.

Stroll the site of Belfountain’s first gristmill and first murder! Learn about the brook trout nursery, the river system and watch fly fishing demonstrations.

Funds raised to support continuing outreach from the Belfountain Heritage Society and the Coalition for the West Credit River’s ongoing monitoring work to protect the West Credit River’s rare cold-water ecosystem.
