Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canada Goose Monument (Lundar, RM of Coldwell)

A statue of a large Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) at Lundar in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell was designed by local naturalist Lawrence King and painted in authentic colours by artist Marlene Magnusson Hourd. Sponsored by the Lundar Area Development Board, with funds raised in the mid-1970s, it was unveiled on 20 May 1978. A plaque on the base of the statue was donated by businessman Peter Duncan Curry.
