First time driving through this valley was 4 years ago; there was a big thunderstorm and the only light was from our little sun fire and flashes from the lightning strikes •

We were supposed to fish this.. but didn't want to be the second group that needed rescuing from the river. Ended up completing an open quest from before. Either way fishing is awesome.

In order to recover native trout species, and instead of closing certain fishing streams in the Bighorn, Alberta Environment and Parks promises that "biologists will review relevant research and identify where the conflicts between fish habitat, industrial development and recreational use are most intense." The government will also "spend more to rebuild damaged stream banks and improve infrastructure that blocks free movement of fish" and "increase funding by $100,000 for groups to do similar work and undertake public education programs."

Dewey Matthews of Anchor D Outfitting on the Kananaskis clearcuts that are now underway: “That’s the first thing people are going to see when they take them into that part of the mountains to show them what we have. In anything you do, your first impressions are huge, whether it’s the girl you married, or the house you bought…”. From the story on CTV News.

The clearcuts at Highwood Junction in Kananskis are now scheduled to begin this Saturday, November 18 after receiving their final approval last week. Tell Premier Rachel Notley why Kananaskis is important to you, and to rethink this out-of-date approach to logging in Alberta's headwaters. Call 310-0000 and ask for the office of the Premier. More via the link in our bio.

"That day, an impulse leads her to the mountains.
Mountains?
Instead of driving to Banff like everyone else, and where we had been just days before, she veers off toward Kananaskis."

Took Friday off for our first ski day of the season at Chester Lake and the Elephant Rocks, then spent the weekend at @banffmountainfestival. It was so encouraging to feel the support for Alberta's headwaters in Kananaskis and the Bighorn. Thanks to everyone who came by to chat and sign their support!

Alberta Environment and Parks is undertaking a Native Trout Recovery Plan in the North-Central Eastern Slopes, including the Bighorn Backcountry. One focus drainage, the Ram River (pictured), needs further input regarding fishery closures as a strategy for native trout recovery. You can contribute at www.talkaep.alberta.ca.

49 businesses immediately downstream from Kananaskis have signed a letter urging the province to halt clearcut logging plans at Highwood Junction because of the negative impact it will have on their bottom line, and because they recognize the value of water, wilderness and wildlife in Alberta's eastern slopes.
.
As Udo Stey of Flys Etc. says, “Logging will put further pressure on the remaining fish stocks. Our business depends on people going to fish and hunt in the area around us. Responsible logging is an option. This should be planned together with everyone sitting at the table." Read more via the link in our bio.

Monday fact: tourism in Kananaskis draws over one million visitors, supports 3,000 full-time jobs, and provides $200 million of economic impact annually. Nontheless, some 36% of Kananaskis is open to commercial logging and 25% to oil and gas development. Take action via the link in our bio.

76% of Calgary and area residents want Kananaskis to be protected with no clearcut logging or oil & gas development. Just over 1 in 4 are aware that this isn't already the case. Kananaskis is full of #PlacesWorthProtecting. Help out via the link in our bio.

Hello, from beautiful Cordova. After spending the day on land soon to be conserved forever, I am sure to have "Salmon Dreams" tonight. #salmonsisters #saiditbest #salmonstreamssalmondreams #we❤️salmon #conservingthestream and #rainforest
We joined conservationists, trappers, hunters, tourism operators, and other friends for a walk in the Highwood yesterday. I don't think anyone was disappointed. Logging road construction was planned for August at Highwood Junction, but is now delayed until November, so there's still time to add your call for a better vision for Kananaskis Country. Link in our bio.

Surprise! 36% of Kananaskis is open to commercial logging and 25% to oil and gas development. Most of those vulnerable lands are found at low elevations near major waterways, in areas that hold high value for water, wildlife, and tourism. We're pretty sure it's time for a new management vision in K-Country. Visit the link in our bio for more.

If you missed the Day of Action on September 7th, you can still call the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry's Office and tell them you don't want to see clearcut logging at Highwood Junction. 310-0000, ask for the Minister's Office, and share your thoughts.

From a considerably clearer night than what we're back to at the moment. McConnell Ridge, Prairie View, Barrier Lake (Reservoir) Lookout, Yates Mountain and so forth. So many names. That's Baldy across the way, and you can see some of the cutblocks to its left.

Earlier this month, @cpawssab released their report on forestry in Alberta's southern eastern slopes, including Kananaskis Country, entitled "Envisioning a better way forward for Alberta." Their more specific recommendations fall under the categories below. If you're interested in the state of Alberta's forests, I'd encourage you to read the report via the link in our bio.
.
1. Designating new protected areas on the Southern Eastern Slopes;
2. Maintaining landscape connectivity and integrity; 
3. Designating areas for recreation and other low-impact land uses; 
4. Maintaining natural age structures on a landscape level; 
5. Restoring damaged and fragmented areas;
6. Designating areas for timber management and implement site-level ecologically sustainable timber management;
7. Applying adaptive management practices.
