Red Deer River Naturalists are hosting a presentation on Feb. 27 on a proposed heritage trail between Norman Wells, N.W.T., and Whitehorse in the Yukon. The CANOL Heritage Trail started out as a Second World War pipeline and road project between the two northern communities. It was shut down before the end of the war and the Northwest Territories section has been abandoned since then. In the 1980s, the route was proposed as a wilderness trail and park. The presentation will include a description of the environment and trail, based on 40 years of research. Professional botanist and author of a number of books Linda Kershaw, and husband Peter Kershaw, who recently retired after a 35-year teaching career at the University of Alberta, will present The Proposed CANOL Heritage Trail, Northwest Territories: A Wilderness Backpacking Experience with a Twist. The Edmonton couple’s talk takes place beginning at 7 p.m. at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre and admission is free.
