LOVE OUR EASTERN SLOPES - THE MOVIE
Love Our Eastern Slopes is a documentary in the making, telling the story of Alberta's sacred eastern slopes.
I personally grew up camping, fishing and exploring the various clearwater river tributaries up the forestry trunk road. Taking family walks to ram river falls to take in the incredible views. Floating down the south ram river as children, to cool off from the heat of the day. Waking up to the sound of wolves howling while back country camping off of the elk flats. and the list goes on..
These hills have brought me so much joy and connection to nature in my life, I can't stand to see them destroyed.
Our mission is to tell all their secrets, introduce their wildlife, their waters and even some of their people visually for all canadians and beyond to see.
Alberta's eastern slopes are threatened by open pit mining due to the 1976 coal act being rescinded by the Alberta Government during the summer of 2020. This documentary is meant to spread awareness and show all the reasons to love and fight for our eastern slopes.
