This model of the Royal Alberta Museum’s Fish Camp diorama was part of the Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture at the former Glenora location. The scene depicts a group of Indigenous families fishing on the banks of a stream near Eaglesnest Lake in the Birch Mountains of northern Alberta about a thousand years ago. During spring fish runs from late April to late May, thousands of fish rush up rivers and streams to lay their eggs. Fish are easy to catch and can be preserved in large quantities by smoking and drying.
