CALL Fall Program Launch

CALL is ready with a new season of affordable and innovative learning opportunities. The September 12 Fall Launch will provide information on CALL's interest groups in the following areas: activities, arts & culture, current issues, food & wine, health & relationships, history, media studies, travel and science & environment.

The Launch is a perfect opportunity to join or renew your membership and to learn about CALL interest groups.

Come and bring a friend!

This year CALL’s program launch will feature two dynamic speakers on a very timely topic.

The recent floods in southern Alberta have reawakened our awareness of what a vital - and potentially devastating - role Calgary's rivers play in our lives. These two excellent speakers will delve into the most salient aspects: one from the perspective of the headwaters (west of Calgary) and the other an expert on the City's role vis-a-vis our rivers and water.

1. Kevin van Tighem's presentation, "Healing the Headwaters", will touch on ways in which both spring flooding and summer water shortages are affected by mismanagement of the eastern slopes and foothills, the source of virtually all our river water.

Mr. van Tighem is fourth generation Albertan, born and raised in Calgary. He worked in western national parks for 34 years as a park naturalist, conservation biologist, warden, manager and finally as a superintendent, before retiring in 2011. He is the author of thirteen books and numerous magazine articles and papers dealing with wildlife, ecosystem and conservation matters.

2. Paul Fesko will be presenting “Calgary and the Bow and Elbow Rivers; Issues and Opportunities”.

Paul is the Manager, Strategic Services, The City of Calgary, Water Resources. He is a professional engineer with over 37 years of experience in civil, municipal and water resource engineering. He has worked for The City for 27 years.
