I've got tickets!

I've been offered 10 tickets to a special event by Parks Canada; you may be interested in going.

Here's their write-up, from Facebook:
Oasis HD & Cineplex Theaters proudly present…
Two never before seen episodes of "A Park for All Seasons".
NOVEMBER 13th at 4:00PM ET / 1:00PM PT

"A Park for all Seasons" goes behind the scenes of Canada’s most spectacular National Parks. Learn the history, explore the diversity and soak in the beauty of some of the planet’s most compelling natural playgrounds.
The exclusive event will be hosted by Canadian musician and conservationist Sarah Harmer with experts including the series director PJ Naworynski. 
Experience the challenges of preserving Canada’s most beautiful and wild landscapes, and find out more from the extraordinary people on the ground.
Sarah Harmer's Bio:
List of participating theatres:
The two episodes that will be screened are: 
Workers at Pukaskwa National Park search for evidence of a relic herd of caribou, track an archaic sturgeon population, and scout cliffs for endangered Peregrine Falcons. Ontario’s only wilderness park is the front line for recovering the ancient-wild. 
High above the Arctic Circle, Tuktut Nogait is the hidden-gem of Canada’s Park system. With no facilities on the ground, scientists struggle to study scarce populations of Caribou and archaeology sites containing artifacts of an ancient culture. 
For more information about the series visit:

Tuktut Nogait, meaning "Young Caribou", is just about directly north of the BC/Alberta border, in the Northwest Territories, about 1400 km west as the raven flies from Arctic Bay, where Clare (The House and other Arctic Musings) blogs.

Pukaskwa National Park is on the north shore of Lake Superior, near Thunder Bay. Both these places are incredibly beautiful.

I've never heard Sarah Harmer, and I haven't watched this program before, but it definitely looks interesting. It will be presented in theatres across Canada; there are three within a short drive from us. Unfortunately, we won't be able to make it that day.

That means I'll have all 10 tickets to share as soon as Canada Post sees fit to deliver them. If you would like to see this presentation, e-mail me (wanderinweeta at gmail dot com) with your snail mail address, and I'll send you a couple right away.

  1. Too bad I won't be at the coast at that time.

    Sarah Harman is featured on the Vinyl Cafe once in a while. That is where I first heard her anyway.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
