by Parks Canada to encourage Canadians
to explore national parks. Shown are some favourite activities, including camping, mountain biking, hiking and bird-watching.
One of the illustrations features the animal
overpass seen in Banff, and also many of the foods that the Grizzly should (and shouldn’t)
To the left is a spread comissioned by Banff
National Park to make visitors aware of the muskox’s survival tactics, in that they shield their young in the centre of the herd.
The photograph in the lower left captures the media day of a public art installation which is now displayed permanently in Ralph Klien Park to highlight the unique creatures that visitors can spot in the park.
