Water, Water, Everywhere!

North-West Mounted Police Barracks (609 Main St, Canmore)
Sure, Canmore’s mountains have been here for over 50 million years ago, but they’re always changing. The biggest source of that change is water! There’s water everywhere in the Rockies, from frozen glaciers to blue-green lakes, to cascading waterfalls. But where does it come from, where is it going, and most importantly, what does it do along the way? In this short program we model the role that the water cycle plays in shaping the Rockies while creating our own network of rivers, streams, canals, lakes and ponds to drain water from our Great Divide back to the oceans. Waterfalls, bank erosion, dam failure, and wet feet ensue!
This program only runs from June to September, due to the potential of it ending with us completely soaked!
