Join the Let’s Find Out Podcast for a live recording in Edmonton, Alberta on September 21st!
“How to Make a National Park”
21 September 2023, 7:30pm MDT
Did you know that Elk Island National Park used to have a bison abattoir? Have you ever heard of the national parks in Alberta that were dissolved? Join us for a live podcast recording exploring the wild history of making national parks in our area, and what it can teach us about the current plans to build a new urban national park in Edmonton’s river valley.
The evening will be hosted by Chris Chang-Yen Phillips, with special guests including Lauren Markewicz – a public historian, member of the IUCN Bison Specialist Group, and author of Like Distant Thunder: Canada’s Bison Conservation Story.
Let’s Find Out is an award-winning local history podcast, published by Taproot Edmonton. We take questions from curious Edmontonians about local history, and find out the answers together.
This event caps our season exploring the history of parks and natural areas in Edmonton.
Doors open at 7 PM, event begins at 7:30 PM.
Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 at the door, or free for Taproot Members with a discount code (check your Taproot newsletter!)
This venue has barrier-free access.
