Pioneer Walk Plaques

The Pioneer Walk leading from the Verbena Dormitory towards the Naust which shelters the Viking ship Freydis Joanna and honours Danish settlers, both past and present.

Beautifully engraved plaques decorate the walkway (size 6.5” x 3”, maximum 75 characters), recognizing the Danes who came to build a life and legacy in Canada.

Take a moment to reflect as you move along our Pioneer Walk, and think of the history surrounding you. If you would like to recognize yourself, family, relative, or a friend—Pioneer Walk Plaques are available to purchase for everyone.

$600—tax deductible charitable receipt in the amount of $400.
