The Howl Experience – Bow Valley
5 million people visit the Bow Valley annually and all want to visit the same sites. This puts tremendous pressure on these areas and causes issues with wildlife, erosion, pollution and more. Youth participants will help with all of these issues in a variety of ways.
You will become wildlife ambassador through your work with local conservation scientists and spread this knowledge through their work with visitors. This work will be in partnership with Alberta Parks, Banff National Park. You will contribute to the monitoring of certain threatened key species in these unique ecosystems. You will assist in the operations of various cultural events and festivals taking place throughout the various communities. You will help in the maintenance and expansion of the trail system & other tourist hot spots. This is the physical labour component for the most part.
