Learn about the spectacular wildlife diversity of the Kootenays with Kimberley wildlife biologist and educator Dave Quinn. Dave will share stories and information from 20 years of work with a range of species, from the tiny least weasel to the endangered and disappearing mountain caribou, and explore questions like: What is the difference between horns and antlers? How many species of the weasel family call the Kootenays home? Why do black bears adapt to humans easier than grizzly bears? What techniques do biologists use to gather information about wildlife? There will also be an opportunity to ask questions about your favourite Kootenay wildlife.
