Staff at Play: Paddling the Lower Gold River

Summer has hit here at the lodge!  Everyone here at the lodge has been exploring the island enjoying the outdoors.  Some of the the staff this past weekend went white water paddling, sea kayaking, climbing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and watched the Vancouver Canucks win in Vancouver.  GO CANUCKS GO!

Recreational Users, Environment and Cities working together!

A really cool project combing recreational paddlers and the city of Calgary has brought a functional and safe boating opportunity for those in Calgary.  The Harvie Passage weir was created to fix a dangerous weir that has claimed the lives a few.  Click on the link here to see video of the project.   The project website can be found here.
