An Exploration of National Parks: A Free Program at Canton Public Library

He worked with the Canadian National Park system for five years where he wrote the first management plan on the Canmore Corridor, the service area immediately adjacent to Banff National Park. He has studied parks and gardens and their use all over the world and the balance of the tourism industry with park ecology and health.
