Pick

Pick

Description:

The wooden pick handle is much worn, rotting near its base and farther up, mended with electric tape. Perhaps Mr. Walker was thinking of another pick when he told me of discovering a cache of unused picks when he cleared away a collapsed root house to make way for his present house. Samuel (A.W.) Spetch must have intended them for sale.

Taxidermied Otter

Taxidermied Otter

Description:

This is a taxidermic otter that has been mounted on a piece of wood with leaves decorating it. It is perched on the wood with one paw raised and it's tail curved around it. . The taxidermied animals were picked up from the Pemberton Secondary School and we later found out that the specimens were from the Coast Outdoor Mountain School which closed in 1995. These animals were originally from the Pemberton area and were taken to Squamish after the Outdoor School closed. Kirby Young, who used to teach in Pemberton, recognized them and organized their return.
