The pro­ject, from 2011 to 2014, an­a­lyzed hair sam­ples col­lected from bear rub ob­jects, fence cross­ings, and other op­por­tunis­tic sam­pling lo­ca­tions with the aim to pro­vide up­dated in­for­ma­tion on griz­zly bear den­sity and abun­dance within south­west­ern Al­berta.

This video-con­fer­ence ex­plores The Great Di­vide Trail, which tra­verses the con­ti­nen­tal di­vide be­tween Al­berta and Bri­tish Columbia. It wan­ders through the Rocky Moun­tains for more than 1200 kilo­me­ters. Not of­fi­cially signed and not al­ways even an ac­tual trail, it is some­times merely a wilder­ness route, in­spir­ing mod­ern day ad­ven­tures.

If you have any news, sports or events you would like to see in this col­umn, please give me a call at 5333930 or you can email me at wt­clyne@rock­y­ by Fri­day af­ter­noon.

Have a great week ev­ery­body!
