Life Lessons of a Canadian Explorer
Monday, November 25, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The Presentation: In this inspirational presentation, Kyle Blaney shares his favourite nature photos and the life lessons he learned pursuing their capture. One life-changing day seven years ago Kyle watched a Kermode bear hunt for salmon and sat in stunned silence as a humpback whale repeatedly breached. He decided that day to leave his comfortable software career and explore Canada’s vast and magnificent wilderness instead. He is perpetually trying to duplicate that day but doesn't ever expect to succeed
