We have just arrived in Calgary having finished "Phase 1" of The Big Bow Float. With 250 kilometres down, and 400 kilometres to go, we're almost halfway done!

We have hiked and canoed from the Wapta Icefield home of Bow Glacier) all the way to the western edge of the City of Calgary at Bowness Park.

If you are interested in reading more about our trip, please visit the Trip Progress section of our web site. We have posted trip logs and some fantastic pictures of this beautiful river system.

The paddling ends when we reach the Oldman River, but our work continues. Please consider making a donation to support our outreach and education efforts. Your support is needed and appreciated!

For Our River,
