Small and special: One couple’s magical COVID-19 friendly wedding in Jasper
Chelsie and Nicole took their time planning their wedding. After a two-year engagement, and with their respective families located in different parts of the country, the couple decided that if people were going to have to travel anyway, why not travel to a beach. They sent out the invitations in December, 2019 for a Mexico wedding scheduled for, well, around the time we’re publishing this story. Then COVID-19 hit, and the world shut down.
How we’re celebrating 10 years of Jasper’s Dark Sky Preserve
Ten years ago, on March 26, 2011, Jasper National Park became the largest dark sky preserve in the world. In the decade since, the importance of protecting the night sky from light pollution has gained momentum and more dark sky preserves have been designated around the world; Jasper’s now holds the second biggest spot, though is still the largest accessible dark sky preserve (meaning there’s a town within its borders).
11 women in Jasper who inspire us
Jasper has always been a place for trailblazers. In the early 20th century, explorer Mary Schäffer became the first European to visit Maligne Lake, and used her skills as a naturalist, illustrator, photographer, and writer to document the region. Today, women continue to leave their mark and bring life to the national park.
