Karsten Heuer is the Bison Reintroduction Project Manager for Banff National Park, a job he describes as the most stimulating in a 25-year career as a Park Warden and biologist in Alberta and the Yukon. He has taken a few leaves of absence in that time to follow endangered wildlife across the Arctic and along the Rocky Mountains on foot and skis. He has won many awards for the best-selling books he has written about those journeys and for the documentary films he co-created with his wife (e.g. Being Caribou, Walking the Big Wild, Finding Farley).

Light refreshments will be provided, and participants are eligible for a door prize.
