Do You Want a Discovery Walk in Your National Park? - September 5, 2012
It is one of the most contentious projects in Canada's National Park. Now is your chance to stand up against inappropriate development!
Construction has begun on Brewster’s “Glacier Discovery Walk” structure on the Icefields Parkway in Canada's National Park.
Canadian National Parks belong to all of us. Many people remain convinced that this development contradicts national parks policy, and is not only inappropriate but also sets a bad precedent for other commercial enterprises in Canada’s National Parks. (Click for details.)
A group of concerned citizens continues to draw attention to this issue so that Parks Canada and the developer, Brewster Travel Canada (owned 100% by Viad Corp, an event-marketing enterprise based in Phoenix, Arizona) know that this decision is unacceptable.
If you feel the same stand up against further degradation of our national parks and celebrate hope for their future.
for the integrity of our National Parks
12 pm to 4 pm
In the parking lot at the Glacier Discovery Centre (formerly known as the Icefields Centre) on Highway 93 in Jasper National Park.
If you live in Calgary, Edmonton, the Bow Valley, Hinton, Jasper or surrounding areas you are within a few hours’ drive of the Icefields in Jasper.
Throughout the late morning and early afternoon, volunteers will be on-site making signs and handing out information leaflets to visitors at the Icefields Centre.
At 12:30 pm, there will be a program of music, presentations, a dramatization, and a visit from a “Friend of the Goats” from Sunwapta Valley/Tangle Ridge lookout. Bring your instrument if you play!
