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.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
