      My apologies to everyone. I was in a rush to head out the door to work,
      and forgot to paste the information into the message. I think I figured
      it out this time!

      Greetings All;

      I received this information, and thought I would pass it along. I'm not
      sure of all the content in this presentation, but you may contact Ellen
      (phone number included at the end) about more information. I thought
      there
      may be some interest, not just from a geographical perspective - but if
      they cover much of the history of the area, it will be of interest to
      those researching history of First Nations groups (including Sitting
      Bull after the Custer incident), a bit of the whiskey trade, North West
      Mounted Police, pioneer ranchers, and German-Russian settlers - to name
      a few. For your information, or anyone you know who may be interested.

      Show Series)

      What's the highest point of land between the Rocky Mountains and
      Labrador?
      The Cypress Hills! For over 7,000 years visitors have been attracted to
      this island-oasis of cool, moist, mixed forest and fescue grasslands
      surrounded by the dry, short grass prairie. Here species from the
      prairies
      share space with flora and fauna more typical of the Rocky Mountains.
      Spanning two provinces, the area is Canada's first and only
      Interprovincial
      Park and includes Fort Walsh National Historic Site. Beautiful lakes,
      unusual plant and animal species and intriguing history combine to make
      the
      Cypress Hills a memorable place to visit.

      .PRESENTER: Keith Bocking has worked as a Park Interpreter and

      Services Officer in Cypress Hills for 17 years. Keith will share his
      top 10
      reasons why the area is so special.
