Reaching Out in the Ghost – It’s What Good Neighbors Do

September 3, 2014

Wild Land Advocate article, July 2014. Ian Urquhart. One year after the floods of 2013, residents in the Ghost River valley are taking steps to reduce its recurrence. The importance of the Ghost River watershed to Calgary was addressed to Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi with the addition of identifying two major land use issues that could threaten the river’s capacity to handle high-volume floodwater, providing an incentive to create a solution beneficial to both Calgarians and residents of the Ghost River valley.

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
