Helium, a commonly used non-renewable resource, has recently seen massive increases in value. With the increase in value has come increased investment, and Alberta is eager to be part of the rush. While helium could provide an economic boost to the province’s economy, the rapid scramble for helium may cause irrevocable damage to sensitive habitats.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 

and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
