Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre, Shannon Terrace, Fish Creek Provincial Park (13931 Woodpath Rd SW)
Presented by Alison Cole, Visitor Experience Coordinator, Alberta Environment and Parks, Parkland Area
What do Alberta’s badlands, sand-covered toes and foot-long hot-dogs have in common? Nothing really, except that they have all played a part in Alison Cole’s discovery of eastern Alberta’s lesser-known provincial parks. Join Alison on a photographic tour of some of the most interesting protected areas in the east-central portion of the province, and explore countless opportunities for both nature and outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
Alison Cole is the Visitor Experience Coordinator for the east-central portion of the Alberta Parks system of protected areas. She primarily oversees the information delivery, education programming, and interpretation that occurs throughout the area east of HWY 2, west of the Saskatchewan border, north of Drumheller and south of the North Saskatchewan river. More importantly, Alison is a nature-enthusiast, an adventurer, and a strong advocate for exploring the lesser-known protected areas across the province.
