In the fall and winter months the centre is meant to be self-guided. We have two multi-sensory theatres where you can experience the legends of Sen'klip (the Coyote). There are both indoor and outdoor cultural and nature exhibits. Discover the desert ecology and wildlife in the "Living Land" display and the "Critter Corner" where you can see eye-to-eye with a Western Rattlesnake and a Great Basin Desert Snake.

In the Inkameep Day school Exhibit, explore a collection of art done by students aged six to sixteen at a school on the reserve in the 1930s. The children expressed their sense of identify though drawing and painting under the tutelage of an extraordinary teacher.

As you explore the indoor exhibits, outdoor displays and walking trails you will get a chance to learn about how plants were used for food, medicine and technology. We have over 1.5kms of desert walking trails on our 50 acre site where  you can experience the beauty of our sage and antelope-brush in the natural desert environment. The trails lead to a traditional village where you can peek inside a traditional pit house and sweat lodge. Bring your camera to photography the desert landscapes and sculptures by Smoker Marchand found throughout centre.

In the summer months come and meet our interpreters giving daily trail walks and making presentations like our Snake Alive program. Check out our Events Calendar for program details.
