Red Deer River Watershed Alliance Hiking Learning Journey
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.
