The Ancient Echoes Interpretive Centre was one of a half a dozen groups that received National Trust for Canada honours at a ceremony in Fredericton during the fall.

The National Trust Ecclesiastical Insurance Cornerstone Award for resilient historic places – awarded to Ancient Echoes for conserving the Coal Mine Ravine – goes to organizations that maintain such locations in a significant, sustainable way while benefiting a community over a period of 10 years or more.

The award was for preserving petroglyphs and other geological and First Nations archeological sites in the ravine and “nothing to do with the building,” said Carmel Waddington, who chaired the centre board for four and a half years but resigned last year.
