The Network in Canadian History and Environment (NiCHE), with support from the Eleanor Luxton Historical Foundation ran a field trip to Banff National Park on February 12-15, 2009. Ian MacLaren, Liza Piper, and Zac Robinson from the Department of History & Classics at the University of Alberta organized the field trip for graduate students as an opportunity for those studying Banff, the Rocky Mountains, or parks more generally to visit and learn more about the local and regional environment. The trip considered the significance of field studies to historical and cultural interpretations of Rocky Mountain environments.
