Our Rivers Run Through It

Hosted By: Madeleine Gustavson

With the explosion of renewed interest for coal development in 2020, Our Rivers Run Through It; Keeping the Crowsnest’s Water Clean from Coal traces the history of coal mining in Alberta, the efforts made by activist organizations to fight back against its renaissance, and the current state of affairs in the province.

Our Rivers Run Through It’s conservation focus discusses past and current impacts of coal development on the region’s water, with a transgression to BC’s Elk Valley as an example of development gone awry. Formatted as an audio road trip, this podcast is tailored to commuters in Calgary looking to learn more about the development threatening the Eastern Slopes found in their backyard.
