Globe trotting adventurer to share world through his lens

Jumbo Creek Conservation Society’s AGMh at the David Thompson Secondary School theatre is bound to be an eye-opening evening.

Jumbo Creek Conservation Society’s AGM on Thursday, November 20th at the David Thompson Secondary School theatre in Invermere is bound to be an eye-opening evening.

Attendees will be brought up to date on the latest developments meticulously documented by the Jumbo Wild monitoring team at the heart of Jumbo Valley last summer. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the AGM will start at 7:30 p.m.

As an added attraction, climber/adventurer/photographer Brad Wrobleski will both amuse and provoke you with his richly illustrated presentation, “Chasing Rabbits”. While taking us on a grand tour of Tierra del Fuego, Borneo, Antarctica, Japan, and India, he’ll explain how we find meaning in the places we play, and the importance of wild spaces.

Brad’s work has won two Canadian national magazine awards, several “best” photo awards and various awards for creating entertaining and exciting films including “Best Radical Reel” and the People’s Choice Award at the Banff Mountain Film Festival.
