AWA’s 2023 Annual Martha Kostuch Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture and Awards Evening
Join us for an evening of celebration and learning in November for the annual Martha Kostuch Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture and Awards Evening.
We are pleased to announce our guest lecture will be presented by Dr. Leroy Little Bear, a Blackfoot researcher, and professor emeritus at the University of Lethbridge.
He is also a founding member of Canada’s first Native American Studies Department and is a recognized leader and advocate for First Nations education, rights, self-governance, language and culture. He’s received the Officer Order of Canada, the Alberta Order of Excellence, and numerous other awards and recognition for his work.
AWA’s annual Martha Kostuch Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture is sponsored by the Alberta Wilderness and Wildlife Trust Fund, and is an opportunity for individuals to present the ideas of researchers in a field related to the conservation of wilderness. AWA invites speakers for our Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture, to challenge AWA to seek new directions and ways to increase its effectiveness.
This will be a hybrid event, with an in-person and virtual attendance option. Attendance online is free, in person tickets are $75.
AWA looks forward to hosting friends, members and supporters at our Hillhurst Cottage School in Calgary. Those who are unable to join us in person and choose to watch the evening’s presentations virtually will be sent a link to the Zoom event for the lecture.
