Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative: 20 Years of Progress

 

Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is the beneficiary of DamNation #Calgary presented by Bow River Shuttles on Nov 26, 2014 at Cardel Theatre.

"The Yellowstone to Yukon Vision was first articulated in 1993. Now, more than 20 years later, Y2Y looks back at our collective progress in this video created by documentary filmmaker Leanne Allison."

The Orvis Company CFO II Disc Reel


The Orvis Company CFO II Disc Reel

Donated by Trout Unlimited Canada for DamNation ‪#‎Calgary‬ raffle on Nov 26!

Benefitting Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative Y2Y

The CFO fly fishing reel has been the choice of technical fly fisherman since 1971. Reengineered to be lighter, smoother, and tougher. Although this fly fishing reel is machined using the most modern of materials and state-of-the-art machining technology, the CFO disc drag fly reel is a reverent nod to fly fishing tradition. The reel's signature look and sound are synonymous for thousands of fly fisherman with great moments on the water. It matches as perfectly in spirit, looks and performance with Orvis Superfine or bamboo fly rods as it does with our high-tech Helios fly rods.

Jellified' lakes coming to Canada

Tom Spears, Ottawa Citizen, Nov 19, 2014

"....The good news is that we are able to identify one of the effects of reduced lakewater calcium levels. The bad news is that many lakes have passed critical th
resholds, and we have been reduced to the role of a spectator as these changes continue to unfold. Once again we see that there are many unexpected consequences of our actions — and they are mostly negative...."

World Toilet Day - Nov 19


World Toilet Day - Nov 19

Equality and dignity is the theme of World Toilet Day 2014. The campaign will inspire action to end open defecation and put spotlight on how access to improved sanitation leads to a reduction in assault and violence on women and girls.

Having to defecate openly infringes on human safety and dignity. Women and girls risk rape and abuse as they wait until night falls because they lack of access to a toilet that offers privacy.

We've been off the grid for a few days. No, where we went was not warm. :-)
