Allan Casey and Lakeland

If you don't yet know about prairie writer Allan Casey and his new book, Lakeland, you can get a taste of his thought and fine writing in his new website. Today Allan posted a lovely story about a long walk he recently took north of Saskatoon, where he lives, to Wanuskewin Heritage Park, which has recently re-opened.

Meanwhile take a look at Lakeland if you get a chance. It is a fine book about our love for lakes and the tragedies attending that love. Allan's voice is a powerful and insightful contribution to the conversation we are all having with the gracious and demanding landscapes of these northern plains.

Allan has a keen interest in citizen science, as I do, and we have been talking together about ways of engaging more people in the work of monitoring and restoring the ecological wellbeing of the places we care about.
