Alberta Parks – White Goat and Siffleur Wilderness Areas of the Central Rockies

Thursday, November 24, 2016    7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Presented by Graham Thursfield Visitor Services Coordinator – Rocky Mountain House

Wilderness areas along the Central Rockies are home to incredible wildlife and spectacular scenery that many of us in the Calgary area may not think of visiting. This is your chance to see and learn about some magnificent spots in our Parks network. Join our presenter Graham Thursfield for this virtual grand tour of some truly stunning places.

Tucked far and away in the backcountry of the Rocky Mountains in Central Alberta lie the supremely majestic, harshly wild and highly protected Siffleur
and White Goat Wilderness Areas. The only way in is by foot, the only way out is by traversing steep rocky passes, glacier scoured valleys and crossing
cold, rushing rivers. Hear stories from on the “trail”and admire incredible scenic photos collected by Alberta Parks’ staff during the most recent
patrols into the heart of these incredible areas. You’ll come away with a sense of wonder and deeper understanding of these lesser known but vitally
important Wilderness Areas.

Based out of Rocky Mountain House, Graham Thursfield works for Alberta Parks as a Visitor Experience Coordinator. This work focuses on public engagement, information services and volunteer coordination…whatever it takes to connect people to Parks! He has found endless adventure in the David Thompson Corridor and Bighorn Backcountry Area and enjoys taking people out to experience this remarkable and unheralded place for themselves.
