Going Wild ( With Brian Keating )

Going Wild! with Brian Keating
February 20th, 2014, 7:30 PM.
University of Calgary campus, Information & Communications Technology, Room 102
Feeling a overwhelmed with your everyday demands at work and at home? Is new technology leaving you breathless? Our technological explosion is pushing us to work faster, harder, more efficiently, and all with less people and support in our work environment. And on all of this, there’s your family needs too! What should we do to enable all of us to lead a healthier, better balanced life?

Leave town. That’s right. Get out – and head to Kananaskis Country!

Brian uses the mountains, including 4 decades worth of skiing, hiking and otherwise exploring his favourite weekend get-a-way escape in Kananaskis as a metaphor to creatively illustrate some of life’s exciting options and possibilities.

Brian is the Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Calgary and the former “Head of Conservation Outreach” at the Calgary Zoo, which enabled him to raise money and then spend it on environmental projects around the world.

Brian has been leading groups on nature based travel for three decades, exploring some of the best wildlife areas on the Planet. He’s a weekly guest on both Calgary and Edmonton’s CBC Radio, and for many years, was a regular on the Discovery Channel, using his own wilderness adventure and wildlife filming. He’s also written five children’s books celebrating nature.

He’s a pilot, a naturalist, scuba diver, and mountaineer. His wife, Dee, is a physician and keen naturalist who always joins him on his adventures. Together, they have explored nearly 50 countries on all seven continents in the last quarter century. You can visit his website, goingwild.org and click here for more information on this talk.

      Linda, thanks for the map. I saved it for this event but also for future events. Last week, I was attending a swimmimg competition and was searching the web for a map of U of C and did not find a map to locate the swimming pool.
