While the BC Interior Forestry Museum in Revelstoke usually opens at the beginning May, they said their schedule is on hold and they may open later in the summer as an outdoor museum only.

The Riverside Forest Walk near the museum is still open year round.

At the moment, the Woodstoke Music Festival is still planned for Sept. 5.
