Join us on a field trip through Edmonton’s largest natural area—Big Island Woodbend. Our guides are the North Saskatchewan River Valley Conservation Society. Discover what it takes to join their mission: the politics, the passion for nature, and the ignoring of trespassing signs.
Big Island Woodbend
What’s up in the deep South(west) of Edmonton? Just across the river from well-manicured Windermere, there lies a sprawling natural area—Big Island Woodbend. We met up with the group who has made it their mission to turn the area into a place where all Edmontonians can enjoy and experience nature.
Our guides are Michael Phair and Keren Tang of the North Saskatchewan River Valley Conservation Society. On the trail, you’ll also hear from Danielle Dolgoy, Tasmia Nishat,Carson Fong, Chris Chang-Yen Phillips and Trevor Chow-Fraser.
