DamNation Calgary - Another success story!

DamNation Calgary - Nov 26, 2014

This unique event was organized and presented by Michelle Magotiaux, owner/operator of Bow River Shuttles. It brought together two groups who share a common interest - their love of free-flowing rivers. Members of the local fly fishing community and those from the local environmental concerns community mixed and mingled, all in support of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative Y2Y.

Regretably, a winter storm warning had been issued for K-Country, as well as Banff and Jasper earlier in the day. This resulted in the Y2Y representatives Renée Krysko, Donor Relations Manager and Wendy Francis, Program Director,
who are based in Canmore, not being able to attend.

However, most eveyone else made it out, as the weather in Calgary itself was still manageable.

Big 'THANKS' to all the DamNation fans who came out, along the our volunteers and the "Friends of Damnation" who had display tables set up in the lobby. We appreciate your interest and support! :-)
