Discovery Claim National Historic Site

Discovery Claim National Historic Site is where gold was discovered in 1896, triggering the Klondike Goldrush. It is a legally defined mining claim measuring 500 by 2000 feet located on Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon. The site is in a deep valley which has been mined heavily since the discovery, first by hand then with mechanized equipment.

The discovery story’s details vary, but it is generally held that Keish /
Skookum Jim Mason, of the Tagish First Nation, discovered the gold. Soon after the discovery, every creek and hillside in the Klondike was being worked.

Explore the 1.5-km/1-mile interpretive trail with the site guide, the
Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the
Geocache. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-993-7200,

Annual Crane and Sheep Festival

"Each spring Sandhill Cranes fly back to their nesting grounds in the northern regions of North America and north eastern Siberia. They use the thermals over Faro as their elevator to gain altitude. In their migration flights, the Sandhill Crane will fly in long lines or in Vs. They make a loud garoo-oo-a-a-a type of call when they fly which can be heard more than 1.6 km (1 mile) away. This means it is likely you will hear them long before you actual see them in flight.

You will also witness nature’s most amazing sight, the Fannin sheep coming out with their young ones. Fannin sheep can only be found around Faro, Yukon Territory.

You can witness all this and enjoy a wonderful weekend full of fun, activities, free barbeques, presentations, wildlife viewing and more by participating in our Annual Crane and Sheep Festival scheduled from May 2-4, 2014. "
