“This is a fabulous book that shows the beauty and wonder that is Alberta. Through this book I hope students see and appreciate the beauty and realize what we stand to lose if we don’t make changes to preserve the environment.

“One of the locally developed courses that I teach is Species at Risk. The course is designed to make students aware of the interactions between people and the environment and the impact it has. Sometimes it is hard to find material. This book will be a great help, not only for myself, but also for the students as they research the effects of human interactions with different Alberta species.”

                                                                     Grant Henderson – Superintendant of Schools, Medicine Hat

“[Wild Alberta at the Crossroads] is a beautiful and comprehensive book. [S]tudents here … have looked at the book as a group during library classes. Already, the list of those students wanting to check it out is growing. 

“It is organizations such as [yours] that make those small but significant differences in a child’s life. The blessing to hold a book in your hand is not always shared by my students. Having an up-to-date library really helps those students who don’t have books at home and would not ordinarily be able to see such quality material. Your recognition of this vital aspect of a child’s life is greatly appreciated.”
