In June 2013, Canmore and the adjacent Municipal District of Bighorn suffered the worst hydroclimatic event in their history. Tens of millions of dollars of damages resulted from debris flows, debris floods, flooding and bank erosion.

Participants will learn about the June 2013 event, subsequent hazard and quantitative risk assessments, mitigation approaches, and the evolution of risk management policy, while visiting locations where geohazard mitigation measures are actively under construction.
