In April 2014 the COASTtoCASCADES team organised the groups first public event with 'A Night with Grizzlies' Whistler. It was a pleasant surprise when the event sold out, with 300 attendees and over 50 more people turned away as we were out of space. For a relatively small community it was great to see the passion surrounding iconic grizzlies and since then we knew we wanted to do more to connect British Columbians with their local grizzly bears.
So here it is...the next instalment of "A Night with Grizzlies' and this time we are in North Vancouver. Please join COASTtoCASCADES and guest speakers to spend an evening with the grizzly bears of southwest British Columbia at North Vancouver's Centennial Theatre on Tuesday May 12th.
Learn about why grizzly bears matter, what we know about grizzly bears from the science, why what's good for bears is good for people and meet some of the people who dedicate their lives to these iconic bears. Guest speakers for the evening will be three of those dedicated souls: Chris Morgan, Ecologist, Author, and PBS / National Geographic / BBC TV Host; Tony Hamilton, BC Ministry of Environment Large Carnivore Specialist and COASTtoCASCADES Field Director and lifelong BC backcountry guide Johnny Mikes.
Hear about our speakers personal adventures with grizzly bears in our wilderness backyard, find out what they have learned from years working closely with bears and understand how what we know now about the grizzly bears of southwest British Columbia provides the key to preventing them from becoming locally extinct.
Doors will open 6:30pm for an information gallery and live music, show starts at 7pm.
