269 – The Legacy of Lois Hole

Edmontonians looking for a little piece of nature, without straying too far from the city, may find satisfaction in a little park I stumbled upon this week called Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park near St. Albert.  It has been designated an ‘Important Bird and Biodiversity Area’ because of the diverse population of waterfowl and shorebirds that are attracted to the area.  The park is named after Lois Hole, the 15th Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.  Several other places are named after this woman around Edmonton, including schools, hospitals and more.
