Join Us: March 1 - 2 Biosphere Open House and Forum

Hello! Tansi! 

The Beaver Hills Biosphere is excited to announce our inaugural open house, forum and mini trade show on March 1 (6:00 pm – 9:00 pm) and March 2 (8:30 am – 4:00 pm) taking place in the Agora Room at the Strathcona County Centre, in Sherwood Park.  

The evening of March 1, we will re-introduce the Beaver Hills Biosphere and explore the importance of two-eyed seeing within the Biosphere with our keynote speakers, Amber Paquette, Nehiyaw and Métis multi-disciplinary artist, writer, educator and storyteller and Edmonton’s 6th historian laureate, and Dylan Reade, documentary filmmaker and IMAX cameraman whose credits include the Biosphere’s series of video vignettes that recount the stories of the Beaver Hills from past to present. 

On March 2, we will share what we do, what we are passionate about and explore the untapped opportunities the Biosphere has to offer through a variety of presentations from engaging speakers talking about the important projects that have taken place within the Biosphere and which are defining what it means to be a learning place for sustainable development. 

In addition, on both days, our partners, stakeholders, fellow non-profit organizations and community groups have been invited to participate in our mini trade show to highlight their activities and programs.  

In all, it will be a great opportunity learn, connect and network with others who are interested in and passionate about all the Beaver Hills Biosphere has to offer.  

There will be a nominal fee to attend (to cover the cost of food and refreshments). We appreciate your support.

We look forward to seeing you.
