Finding Common Ground: Be a part of the conversation

Tour full, but there is a waiting list

The Finding Common Ground 2.0 Energy Ambassador Tour is currently full, but organizers are still accepting registrations to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

“This tour is all about starting conversations about energy,” said Makenzie Durocher, education and outreach assistant for Battle River Watershed Alliance.

The two-day tour on Oct. 23 and 24 will explore energy options and opportunities in the region, including stops in Maskwacis and Lacombe.

In Maskwacis, tour participants will hear from Louis Bull council member Desmond Bull on the Louis Bull Nation’s solar projects and training initiative.

The group will head to Lacombe Composite High School to listen to keynote speaker David Dodge speak on green energy futures and tour the school’s energy projects, including its solar panels and aquaponics system.

The tour will also head to the Paintearth Mine and the ATCO Battle River Generating Station and Halkirk to visit the Capital Power Wind Farm.
