Meet Your Alberta Parks Ambassadors – Karen U

Alberta Parks Ambassadors are united by a common passion for all things Alberta Parks and a desire to share their experiences. This spring, 130 people applied to take part in the Ambassador Program and from those applicants 13 were chosen to bring their adventures to life for everyone to enjoy and to inspire people to have their own Alberta Parks experience.

Through this 13 part blog series, we will introduce your Alberta Parks Ambassadors and tell you what they’ve been on this summer.
