A journey of adventure, exploration and discovery!
Join us for an evening of stories with world renowned bear expert, Charlie Russell. Hear about Charlie’s journey of discovery into the true nature of grizzly bears, including working with Spirit Bears on Princess Royal Island and raising grizzly bear cubs in Kamchatka, Russia. An author, photographer and self-taught pilot with an adventurous spirit, Charlie has spent the better part of 54 years studying and living with grizzlies. 

Charlie is featured in the BBC films Bear Man of Kamchatka and Edge of Eden, and has published the books Spirit Bear, Grizzly Heart, Grizzly Seasons and Learning to Be Wild: Raising Orphan Grizzlies. 

Dustin Lynx, author of Hiking Canada’s Great Divide Trail guidebook, will start the evening by sharing a few of his adventures in the wilderness of the Great Divide Trail and beyond.
