Valentine’s Day 2012: Alberta Wilderness Association

It is a beautiful thing to have the Castle and Kananaskis wilderness in such close proximity to the city!  I believe that we need to do everything possible to protect this wilderness.

I remember collecting coin during the festival at Maycroft Crossing so many years ago.  As a ‘Friend of the Oldman’, I hoped that the last ditch effort of so many people would halt the building of the dam on the Oldman River.  The dam went ahead.  I look back on my life and see many points where, along the way, I attempted to have my voice heard on issues related to the environment.  The folk I met down at the McDougall Center today were invigorated and full of hope.  It was so encouraging to witness their enthusiasm!
