|Big Lake, Alberta|
On the edge of Edmonton, Alberta, 1000 miles north of us, sits Big Lake, in the Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park. (links: Prov.Park Big Lake Support Soc. ) The lake is a critically important spot for birds migrating across North America.
Remembering visiting it in midsummer, I am reminded that neither plants nor wildfowl value the same things about places that people do.
