Alberta: History, Ecology and Responsibility

Alberta is the hydrological centre of North America with rivers of waters from the Columbia Icefield flowing into three different oceans and illustrated by an excursion on the Athabasca Glacier and a trip on the Jasper Tramway for a stunning view over mountain ranges. Our explorations on the outskirts of Edmonton at the Ukrainian Heritage Village and Fort Edmonton Park provide insight to the lives of the early pioneers and the City’s early days as a Hudson’s Bay Company. Elk Island is one example where man’s attempts to control parkland has been redressed; and at Jasper National Park, in the Rocky Mountain eco-system, park wardens battle irresponsible travellers who put wildlife at risk.
