SCENIC GEOLOGY OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA: A ROADSIDE HIKING AND TOURING ADVENTURE
Speaker: Dale Leckie, Ph.D., Geologist, Author
Allow Dale Leckie to guide you to Alberta’s most scenic sites. Leckie tells the intriguing story of Alberta’s landscape evolution from Waterton Lakes National Park, to Dinosaur Provincial Park, into the Prairies, and across the North. With trips to Edmonton, Calgary, Crowsnest Pass, and Elk Island National Park, he takes you to explore volcanoes and glaciations long past. This talk includes stops along well-traveled and not-so-well-traveled routes that the curious would be wise to see. Using eye-catching illustrations and photographs, Leckie blends storytelling with science, incorporating natural landscape beauty with art and history. The Scenic Geology of Alberta gives you what you need to discover the spectacular landforms of Alberta.
