Meet oil sands innovator Josh and his dad

Josh's dad is proud of his son's work restoring wetlands, even if he's fuzzy on the technical details

For those of us who have chosen professions that are technical, uncommon or just hard to define, you’ve probably had the experience of a parent or spouse fumbling through an explanation of exactly what is is that you do. In honour of Father’s Day, we invite you to check out this video, featuring Josh, an environmental research scientist, and his dad Pete. There’s a bit of laughter and a lot of pride as Pete tries to explain the important and innovative work Josh performs restoring wetlands after a site is closed and the landscape is reclaimed to a natural state.
