It’s a busy summer at the Aurora Research Institute. Among the many research expeditions and presentations, the science mecca is also hosting ethnobotany tours of its garden and gazebo.

Anyone interested in learning about the plants and herbs of the region and how they were traditionally used by the Inuvialuit and Gwich’in people can stop by at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Tours are approximately 45 minutes and anyone attending should prepare for bugs.

Midnight Sun Tournament this weekend

Rosters are filled, coolers are stocked and Peggy Curtis Field is ready for the annual Midnight Sun Tournament.

Initially costing $750 to attend, the cost for teams was dropped to $500 after Town Council waived the user fees for the field.

The Co-Ed tournament runs from July 29 to Aug. 1.
