The Red Deer River Watershed Alliance (RDRWA) hosted their first Hiking Learning Journey in Dry Island Buffalo Jump provincial park last week. We tagged along for a fun day exploring the park and learning about the challenges in our local watershed.

A multi-sector nonprofit organization, the RDRWA promotes proper water management throughout the Red Deer River watershed. Their first hiking tour was a great introduction to Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park, starting the hike from a lesser used access to visit the site where Albertosaurus was discovered before exploring the dry island itself. The afternoon was spent at the Fyten-Lea Property, a project of Nature Conservancy Canada.
