Wildlife and Forestry
The first buildings in this area were built of unsquared logs with peat moss and mud filling the gaps. All this work was done using hand tools, but soon individuals started to set up steam operated sawmills as lumber was in great demand by the growing community. The area around Hines Creek is rich in wildlife, especially in the areas where considerable tracts of boreal forest remain. These specimens were collected by Wilbert Hoffman who did the taxidermy work on them. The wildlife display is comprised of more than 60 birds and animals in a fall forest and there is also a display of the taxidermy process.
