Join us on a walk with a knowledgeable guide who will share the fascinating history of Cascade Ponds in Banff National Park.
History of the Area
It’s an eye-opening experience when you take a walk in a mountain meadow or through the forest with Brenda Holder.
She can point to and identify any plant, tree or bush and tell you how it can be used to make something crucial to survival – a fire cider for a flu or cold, a food source or a fire starter.
