Saturday 20 April 2024 - Join Alberta Wilderness Association for an Earth Day barbeque at our Calgary office in Kensington. We’ll eat, mingle and hear from Alberta nature photographer Nick Carter, a writer, photographer, and naturalist from Edmonton. A lifelong love of nature led him to complete a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Alberta. Nick’s interests and experience in natural history span a wide range of topics, from birds and butterflies to fossils and flowers. Nick’s experience in science and nature interpretative guiding include educational roles at Jurassic Forest, TELUS World of Science Edmonton, the John Janzen Nature Centre, Muttart Conservatory, and the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum. Nick has also worked as an ornithologist at the Royal Alberta Museum and is currently an educator with the Canadian Wildlife Federation in Edmonton. As a writer, Nick has produced columns, articles, blog posts, and guidebooks about Alberta’s wildlife, palaeontology, geology, and natural areas. His work has appeared in a variety of magazines, newspapers, and blogs including Nature Alberta Magazine, Poplar Magazine, Alberta Prime Times, and Interpretation Canada. Nick’s wildlife and nature photos have appeared alongside his writing pieces as well as online provincial art showcases, and he has also dabbled in portrait photography. - Event Details
