Season Two - Episode 11

Stories featured this week include:


Pheasant Hunting in Taber
The first two days of the Taber Pheasant Festival are reserved for novice hunters of any age, and Mary signed up to see what it was all about. She learned how to rock the birds to sleep, tuck them into the grass, and then work her way through the hunt. Let's see how she and the other first-timers made out!


River Watch
Students from an Edmonton junior high school are doing science experiments along the North Saskatchewan river so that we can all have a better understanding of our impact on the river system. The Alberta River Watch program is a floating laboratory that attempts to answer the question,  "How healthy is your river?"


Calgary Trout Pond
We attended the grand opening of Calgary's first stocked fishing pond. On a beautiful sunny day, several families were on hand to be among the first to enjoy the new fishing centre located in the heart of Calgary. Something for you to consider visiting this coming summer!

We return to William A. Switzer Provincial Park to join a group of grade 4 and 5 students as they continue on their winter survival course. The course, offered through Alberta Parks, teaches kids how to light a fire, build shelters, and even catch their own food.

Shell True North Forest
It's one of the largest conservation sites in Alberta. Thanks to a collaborative approach between the Alberta Conservation Association and Shell, this property located in the Spirit River area is bound to be a favorite for hunters hoping for an opportunity to hunt deer like this.

Brad Fenson puts his back into it! While power ice augers have made ice fishing more enjoyable, there are still a few things to keep in mind when using these tools. Brad will drill down to the auger essentials.

Thanks to the efforts of the volunteers at a wildlife centre near Red Deer, this young Bald Eagle will have a second chance to fly again. After suffering a number of broken bones from being hit by a car, this young eagle will soon be back flying over the Alberta landscape.
