Season Two - Episode 3

Stories featured this week include:

Johnston Canyon Ice Walk
Elma and Mike take a walk through the frozen glory of Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park. With special ice cleats on their boots, their guide shows them the spectacular beauty of one of the best-kept secrets in the park.

Bull trout migration patterns
Unique underwater scanners and traps help biologists track the movements of tagged bull trout in the Castle River drainage system in southern Alberta. Data collected ensure bull trout remain part of Alberta's ecosystem for years to come.

Nature for Newcomers
We visited Fish Creek Provincial Park where they run a program geared towards introducing Alberta Parks to new Canadians. Camping and outdoor recreation is a new concept to many of these immigrant families. Programs like this are the first step to removing barriers to participation.

Energy in Action

A grade 4 class in Rocky Mountain House participates in an interactive educational program designed to teach students how natural resources are formed and extracted.

Gear Guide - compact survival kit
Brad Fenson gives us some tips on what to put into a lightweight survival kit. He stresses the basics like matches and first aid supplies of course, but offers some suggestions on other items to customize your kit.

Avalanche preparedness
With the right training and information you can reduce your exposure to avalanche hazards when out in the back country. We talk with an avalanche expert about what triggers avalanches and how to prepare for the possibility of such an event.
