Author Kevin Van Tighem will be joined by photographer Brian Van Tighem for a presentation of Heart Waters: Sources of the Bow River on Wednesday evening, November 18 at the Cardel Theatre. This presentation deals with various headwater tributaries of the Bow River and the conservation issues around them. Kevin and Brian will touch on topics like non-native trout introductions, hydro dams, beavers, flood engineering, and more. Brian's beautiful and thought-provoking photographs of the Bow River area will be shown throughout the presentation.

In their recently released book, Heart Waters, Brian and Kevin aim to educate as many readers as possible about the past and future of the streams that drain the headwaters of the Bow River, and is meant to promote conservation. 

Doors will open at 6:30pm for a pre-event social during which Kevin and Brian will be available for book signing and local conservation organizations will have informational booths set up in the theatre lobby. The presentation will start at 7:30pm. A bucket raffle will be held with prizes such as gift cards and merchandise from retailers and sporting goods stores. All proceeds from the event will help support Trout Unlimited Canada's conservation and education projects.

Please note the Cardel Theatre asks that all people attending the event bring a food bank donation.

Tickets can  be purchased at the Trout Unlimited Canada Head Office for $13.00 during regular business hours (Suite 160, 6712 Fisher Street SE, Calgary) or online through Eventbrite.
