My collection of old photos sometimes captures my attention, and I will get mesmerized by old slide photos that hold a lot of great memories. While browsing thru photos, you can cash in on reviving thoughts of an experience from the past that has had a real influence on your own coarse in life. Exploring old photo files on my computer often reveals something that I find of interest and I expect some of my readers will too.
The Canmore Creek Project is like a “blast from the past” musical tune that you would hear on a radio or on TV. It brings back a lot of good memories and fortunately I took plenty of photos to document our progress back then.
It was determined that a log wall, with vegetation consisting of native willows and trees at the base of the slope, would be the most cost effective approach. An old beaver dam would then be removed to allow the stream’s flow to flush out the streambed. There was a considerable amount of tailings that had smothered the streambed, over the years.
The entire stream restoration and enhancement of Canmore Creek also contributed to the cleaner streambed on the creek today. A crew of 7 hard working men and women, helped to achieve this goal of a successful project’s completion, over a four year program.
