Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites are announcing a number of programs taking place over the summer for the education and enjoyment of visitors.

From July 6 to Aug. 31, personally guided tours in the fort’s 1942 Willys Jeep will be offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 3 p.m. for $20 a group throughout the summer. It’s an option for those wanting a unique experience at the fort, or for those with mobility concerns. Bookings are required.

The Art in the Park program will be ongoing until Sept. 19 and will see local artists coming to the fort to find inspiration and create on site. Weekly art classes will also be held on most Mondays and Tuesdays, from 1 to 3 p.m., with supplies provided for free.

Building on the fort’s aboriginal program, an Esquimalt First Nation elder will offer guided walks on the medicinal properties of native plants. The walks will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays throughout the summer.
