NORTHWEWEST PLAINS INTERPRETIVE AND RESEARCH CENTER MUSEUM

For a long time we have had the dream of establishing a Northwest Plains Interpre- tive and Research Center and Museum. (some background) To this end, we are prepared to go into a PARTNERSHIP with ANY COMMUNITY in Alberta interested in development of such a center as a tourism development. We are prepared to meet or exceede on a dollar-for-dollar basis the community input to several million dollars. According to the Government of Alberta Department of Economic Development, every $1 invested in tourism brings $11 in economic returns. According to the same source, each tourist visiting a community is prepared to spend an average of $100 in the community. For a small community with a major attraction, this can be considerably more. This is a major economic benefit to any community, especially to a smaller com- munity. Just ask Big Valley, or Rosebud. A Northern Plains center has the potential to draw 40,000 visitors annually. Currently no such center exists in Canada. The nearest similar centers are in Helena (Montana) and Cody (Wyoming). On the Northwest Plains there area ony the Glenbow and Luxton Museums that have some complementary displays. Furthermore, it is the nature of museums that they are complementary, not competitve. We invite interested communities to contact us.
