The majestic Athabasca River has long been a source of inspiration for Albertans. It flows with seeming perpetuity across Alberta’s history and landscape but the river and watershed are at risk. Unprecedented industrial development and environmental threats such as climate change are threatening the future of the Athabasca River Basin.
Connecting the Drops is an outreach and awareness campaign that culminates in a two-month expedition along the entire length of the Athabasca River. The expedition celebrates this extraordinary western waterway, a symbol of Canadian identity and wilderness.
