Tony PalmerA big congrats goes out to friend of the site, Tony Palmer of Undercurrents paddling shop. He was recently awarded the first ever Paddle Canada Alberta Environmental Super Hero Award.

Tony has been quietly working away in the background for projects that benefit both Albertans and all of Canada.

He has been one of the driving forces to redesign the super dangerous Calgary Weir on the Bow River into a fantastic whitewater learning and play spot to be called the Frank Harvie Passage.

He is also involved with Leave No Trace and was involved in the development of their rivers and lake information card. His outdoor store also sponsored the printing of 10,000 cards that have been distributed across Canada.

Congrats Tony!
