    Just another pretty face? It was once called Lake of the Little Fishes, then Emerald Lake, now Lake Louise. Since 1882, this place has been an icon for Canada and the Canadian Rockies. On the shore is the dedication plaque that recognizes this place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But do you really know why? Join local naturalist Peter Duck for a walk and talk along the lake shore trail to find out about the elements of natural and human history that combine to make this location one of the special places on earth.
