An exhibit at the Fernie Museum will celebrate the awesome Bugaboos.

Alpinists flock from all over the globe to hike, climb and ski amongst the Bugaboos, the granite nunataks that sprout from one of the largest glacier systems in the Purcell range.

Curated by Pat Morrow and produced by the Art Gallery of Golden, The Bugaboos-A Celebration in Story & Image commemorates BC Parks’s centennial and the natural and human history of Bugaboo Provincial Park.

Pat Morrow, the curator for the exhibit says he hopes “this exhibit will provide the impetus for one and all to explore this gem of a park in their big backyard, with or without cameras, and discover for themselves the challenge of the heights and the nurturing effect of nature.”

Opening reception is Friday, 7 to 9 p.m
