This is one of three free events at Calgary Central Library on December 11th in celebration of International Mountain Day.  

Alberta Environment and Parks Chief Scientist, Dr. Fred Wrona, will offer an overview of change in Alberta’s Rocky Mountain ecosystems. From Mount Sprague in Willmore Wilderness Park, to the Kananaskis range just outside the doors of Calgary, to High Rock Range in Southwestern Alberta, these areas are home to some of the most important headwaters in Alberta, providing habitat for an abundance of species, and freshwater for millions of people.

To celebrate International Mountain Day, Dr. Fred Wrona will be talking about how climate change and human activities impact the sensitive Rocky Mountain ecosystem, including the scientific assessment of ecological stressors in the Castle Region of Southwestern Alberta.
