16 Sep 2014 7:30 pmBackcountry Lodges of the Canadian Rockies
Presented by John McFaul.
The Canadian Rockies are one of the premier hiking areas in the world. Calgarians are very fortunate to live close enough to enjoy day trips to the mountains and then return home the same day. However, a great way to immerse yourself in the grandeur of the mountains is to stay overnight in a backcountry lodge.
From Talus to Tonquin there are a number of lodges that provide a wonderful retreat at the end of a day of alpine adventures. Join naturalist and hiking guide John McFaul for an evening of introduction to several of these alpine oasis and the beautiful landscapes that surround them.
Note that Nature Calgary’s monthly Speaker Series general meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of each month this year, at Cardel Theatre, in the southeast area of Quarry Park. This fabulous new theatre-style hall has been made available to non-profit organizations at very low cost by Cardel Foundations. Because of this, the Foundations would appreciate participants’ donations of non-perishable food for the Calgary Food Bank, placed in their Food Bank Box in the theatre lobby.
Cardel Theatre’s address is 180 Quarry Park Blvd SE, a short distance south of Carburn Park. There is ample free parking.
Driving directions to Cardel Theatre: On Deerfoot Trail, take the EAST Glenmore Trail exit. After you cross the Bow River, take the next exit (18 St. SE) and head south. At the 5th intersection, turn left onto Quarry Park Blvd SE, and then left again into the parking lot circle. Park in the parking area for CARDEL.
