Expeditions

The Unity Peak Expedition 1998

Unity Peak Expedition Unity Peak is a mountain 2848 m high in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. It was named by a group of students from South Carleton High School, located just southwest of Ottawa.

The expedition to Unity Peak is part of the South Carleton High School ‘The Western Experience’ project which has the goal of uniting all Canadians. In addition to the social aspects of bringing students from various areas of Canada together to learn about each other, there were also a number of scientific experiments that were conducted in this environmentally sensitive area such as collecting samples of glacial water and ice cores.

During the expedition to climb Unity Peak the students also maintained a web site, to let Canadians and the world know about their adventure.
