Parks Canada resource management officer Tyler Harbidge, left, gives instructions to nine first-year Nunavut Arctic College Environment Technology Program students April 4 near Crazy Lake, about 13 kms from Iqaluit. Harbidge was invited to ETP's annual winter field camp, which ran April 2 - 9, to train students in avalanche awareness. Parks Canada is hoping the training, and familiarity with equipment, will allow those students to take part in future emergency searches once they take jobs throughout Nunavut. The ETP field camp included other survival training as well as exposed students to field science, in this case, freshwater research at Crazy Lake.
