About Me

I am a geographer, hiker and naturalist who has lived in the Elbow River watershed for four decades. I write non-fiction and technical materials, based on my forty-year career as a geomatics consultant, environmental applications specialist and educator/trainer. 

My interests include mapping and exploring our environment, and Canadian history. As a Director of the Elbow River Watershed Partnership and of the Elbow River Estates Water Co-operative, my interest in and passion about local watershed issues has grown, and this book is the result.

The book is now available at http://www.friesenpress.com/bookstore/title/119734000023703533/Diane-Coleman-Mountains-to-Metropolis%3A-The-Elbow-River-Watershed, at Amazon.ca, at the Moose Mountain General Store in Bragg Creek, or from me directly (mapchick@telus.net).
