Four Fifths a Grizzly: Fernie

Event Date(s): 
Tuesday, February 14, 2023

Join acclaimed author, naturalist and biologist Douglas Chadwick on a Kootenays book tour this February.

In his latest book, Four Fifths a Grizzly, Douglas explores humans’ place in the natural world, beginning with the close relationship between humans and grizzly bears, and expanding to look at our DNA in comparison to salmon, insects, even a wine grape. He challenges the preconception that we are separate from nature.

The book is a compilation of engaging personal essays that advocates that the path toward conservation begins with how we see our place in the world.

The event will include a presentation by Douglas, as well as an overview of Wildsight’s work in the region, and time for discussion and questions. We invite you to join in on what is sure to be a fascinating evening.

Admission is by donation. Get your tickets today to secure your spot, and be entered for a door prize of a signed copy of the book!
