The Miners Walk will tell the whole story of the importance of mining and the powerful effect it has had in shaping what Fernie is today. This will be done by creating an outdoor exhibit that is compelling, enduring and attractive. From this people will gain a respect for what happened in the past, is happening now and will be part of creating a positive future.
Within the context of the overall mission, a number of specific goals for this project have been identified:
• tell the story of significant players in coal mining in the area,
• describe the geology and natural and human history of the Fernie area as it relates to coal mining,
• engage Fernie and area residents including schools and clubs in the creation process.
