Gain critical insight from UAlberta Professor Glen Hvenegaard, ‘87 BSc Forestry, ‘89 MSc Wildland Recreation, into how Canadians can responsibly celebrate the national parks. More than 7.5 million people visited Banff and Jasper national parks last year, and that number is expected to increase during Canada 150.
Despite the many reasons to celebrate Canada’s centrepieces of conservation and tourism efforts, debate remains about the long term impact people and park development has on the future of the National parks.
