Why Mountains Matter
Mountain systems provide essential benefits to Canadians from coast to coast to coast. These include fresh water, wildlife habitat, natural resources, energy, shelter, recreation, and spiritual connection. Mountains make up an array of different ecological systems connecting the land, and sustaining a diversity of life forms and the way of life and culture of the people who live there.
International Mountain Day
The United Nations has designated December 11th as International Mountain Day to celebrate and call attention to the world about the importance of mountains to life.
