Alberta's iconic river has been dammed and plumbed, made to spin hydro-electric turbines, and used to cleanse Calgary. Artificial lakes in the mountains rearrange its flow; downstream weirs and ditches divert it to irrigate the parched prairie. Far from being wild, the Bow is now very much a human product: its fish are as manufactured as its altered flow, changed water quality, and newly stabilized and forested banks. The River Returns brings the story of the Bow River's transformation full circle through an exploration of the recent revolution in environmental thinking and regulation that has led to new limits on what might be done with and to the river.

Calgary's pathway system stretches over 223 km and is one of the most used recreational facilities in the city. As part of the Pathwatch '94 project, 1,757 people out on the pathway were surveyed on where and when they used the pathways; how aware people are of the by-laws and regulations; how safe people felt; how often the average user is on the pathways and what they use it for; and the best was to provide education to pathway users. Data was also gathered on the age, gender, and specific activity being conducted by each user. This report discusses the results of the survey. Appendices include the survey and suggestions for improving the pathway and its safety.

In metropolitan areas across the country, you can hear the laments over the loss of green space to new subdivisions and strip malls. But some city residents have taken unprecedented measures to protect their open land, and a growing movement seeks not only to preserve these lands but to link them in green corridors. Many land-use and urban planning professionals, along with landscape architects and environmental advocates, have joined in efforts to preserve natural areas. MetroGreen answers their call for a deeper exploration of the latest thinking and newest practices in this growing conservation field. In ten case studies of U.S. and Canadian cities paired for comparative analysis-Toronto and Chicago, Calgary and Denver, and Vancouver and Portland among them-Erickson looks closely at the motivations and objectives for connecting open spaces across metropolitan areas. She documents how open-space networks have been successfully created and protected, while also highlighting the critical human and ecological benefits of connectivity. MetroGreen's unique focus on several cities rather than a single urban area offers a perspective on the political, economic, cultural, and environmental conditions that affect open-space planning and the outcomes of its implementation.

Encounters with wild animals are among the most significant relationships between humans and the natural world. Presenting a history of human interactions with wildlife in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan between 1870 and 1960, Wildlife, Land, and People examines the confrontations that led to diverse consequences – from the near annihilation of some species to the extraordinary preservation of others – and skilfully finds the roots of these relationships in people’s needs for food, sport, security, economic development, personal fulfillment, and identity. Donald Wetherell shows how utilitarian practices, in which humans viewed animals either as friendly sources of profit or as threats to their economic and personal security, dominated until the 1960s. Alongside these views, however, other attitudes asserted that wild animals were part of the beauty, mystery, and order of the natural world. Wetherell outlines the ways in which this attitude gained strength after World War II, distinguished by a growing conviction that every species has ecological value. Through a century in which the natural landscape of the prairie region was radically transformed by human activity, conflicts developed over fur and game management, over Aboriginal use of the land, and over the preservation of endangered species like bison and elk. Yet the period also saw the creation of national parks, zoos, and natural history societies. Drawing on a wide array of historical sources and photographs as well as current approaches to environmental history, Wildlife, Land, and People enriches our understanding of the many-layered relationships between humans and nature.

Plots, plans, and perfidy — The characters in these four short stories take matters in their own hands when life presents them with their last shot. From Alice Bienia comes a story about an aging mystery writer about to be dropped by her publisher, and under pressure from her agent to write something brilliant. When an opportunity presents itself, she must decide how far she’s willing to go for a killer plot. Dwayne Clayden tells the tale of a rookie cop who puts himself in harm’s way as he races to find a missing boy. With a known pedophile on the loose, and mother nature thwarting him at every turn, he begs the universe to keep the boy alive—and for a chance to face the boy’s abductor. Winona Kent takes us to London, where an out-of-work jazz musician’s priceless Strat is stolen at a rundown nightclub—and the club owner turns up dead. His search for the Strat takes him to an abandoned Underground station, where a unique employment opportunity presents itself—along with the nightclub owner’s killer. Peter Kingsmill takes us on a trip up Canada’s famous Trent Severn Canal where a former coastguardsman, and his partner, try to outrace and outwit the bad guys after they discover some unwanted cargo on their newly purchased tour boat.

Ceratopsids, or horned dinosaurs, are a group of large-bodied, quadruped herbivores, which lived roughly 65–70 million years ago. Part of a larger group of dinosaurs that includes stegosaurs, ankylosaurs, ornithopods, and pachycephalosaurs, the better-known members of the ceratopsids include centrosaurs, chasmosaurs, and triceratops. Easily distinguished by the horns and frills on their skulls, ceratopsids were one of the most successful of all dinosaurs. This volume presents a broad range of cutting-edge research on the functional biology and behavior, systematics, paleoecology, and paleogeography of the horned dinosaurs, including descriptions of newly identified species. A CD-ROM includes a census of recovered specimens and a history of ceratopsian discoveries in Canada.

Parks Pat Mysteries Looking for a police procedural set in picturesque Canada? Let Award-winning and Bestselling Author P.D. Workman take you her favourite Calgary parks, as Métis detective Margie Patenaude investigates a murder in this fast-paced new series. Detective “Parks” Pat — Margie Patenaude — is a new Calgary homicide detective. Being Métis and a single mom, she has a few things on her plate. Working on a spate of murders in Calgary and area parks earns Margie her nickname. These short mysteries are just right for those days when you could use a break from your busy life. Take a walk in a Calgary park with Parks Pat. Out With the Sunset There’s nothing like jumping straight into the deep end. Margie Patenaude is new in town and wasn’t expecting to get called to a murder scene on her daughter’s first day of school. It’s an ugly murder in a beautiful setting. How can Calgary’s park-goers feel safe with a murderer still on the streets—or pathways? Margie and the team are on the case while at the same time she and her daughter try to acclimatize to the new city. If she wants her coworkers to believe that she’s not just a ‘diversity hire,’ she needs to show them what she’s made of and track this killer down. Long Climb to the Top Solving this case is going to be a long climb Detective Pat is called out to another park homicide scene with disturbing similarities to the Fish Creek murder. Digging more deeply into the evidence reveals something even more worrisome. If her instincts are right, this case may hit a little too close to home. Is she just imagining the connections? Or could her family be in real danger? The clock is ticking as Detective Pat homes in on a killer. Dark Water Under the Bridge Parks Pat could be in deep water on this case! Detective “Parks” Pat has made a name for herself in solving the Fish Creek and Glenbow Ranch murders, so she is the one they call when a body turns up in Ralph Klein Park. She would be happy for the confidence placed in her if it weren’t for the fact that the body is in the water. Detective Pat hates the water. She’ll need to get over that if she is going to be able to investigate this case properly. Preferably before the rest of the department figures out her weakness. There is a killer out there to be caught. Somehow she’ll have to get past her block to find him. Investigate this new series today! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I love the blend of homicide investigation (the police procedural element), personal reflection (the personal element of the sole Indigenous detective who is also raising a teenage daughter on her own), and picturesque scenery (the nature element), all of which combine to yield a tantalizing mystery imbued with character, dimension, and authenticity which draws you into the narrative and irrevocably holds your attention right up to the last page. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I love these stories. Short, exciting and not really predictable, as many short stories are. Plots are well-developed, characters are interesting, and there’s plenty of local lore and history.
