Abstract: The beauty of the natural environment surrounding the town of Golden is subtly miraculous. Surrounded by national and provincial parks the town of Golden exists as a setting for rest and replenishment. The surrounding rugged landscapes, prized for their harsh beauties meets here at Golden with the calm serenity of the Columbia Valley. Along a network of elements threading the town’s existence, the industrious settlement of Golden has become a strategic setting for transportations of goods on rail and road across Canada. The industrious town of Golden today faces challenges between economic and environmental struggles. Golden’s struggle is not unlike many other towns in the mountain west, embracing tourism and growth effectively without damaging the attractive spirit of the town and industrial heritage. This practicum presents the Golden Thread as a balance between the present state of Golden and the future of this community with an exposed respect for environmental and cultural heritage. The ultimate purpose for the Golden Thread is to weave the town of Golden together by fostering a respect for all of what makes Golden extraordinary.
