Gordon Peterson: Voice for the Castle River Wildland

October 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate article from October 2015 by Vivian Pharis, AWA Board Member.

Gord’s story is the archetype of environmentalist/conservation stories in Alberta. Years,even decades of hope, long effort, personal sacrifice, deep commitment to the scraps of natural systems that remain after 60 years of relentless resource extraction, clearcutting, urban and transportation sprawl, breaking the sod and cancerous OHV growth – those efforts always thwarted because of the general belief that we can grow and extract forever without consequence.

I needed something to pare the fat off my soul, to make me grateful again for being alive. And I knew… There is nothing like a wilderness journey for rekindling the fires of life.
