back on the road

Back from my sabbatical and planning is underway for the spring book tour. I’ll be travelling around B.C. visiting many of the regions in the province where Ian McTaggart Cowan did his field work. I’m looking forward to meeting you and sharing some of Ian’s best stories. I was happy to talk in Tofino  on February 11th for the Raincoast Education Society and had a great evening connecting with local naturalists. There are lots more events coming up this spring. More dates and locations will be announced soon.
