It’s our most ambitious Winter Speaker Series to date. Ten fun-filled weeks learning about falcons, dinosaurs, cougars and much, much more – it all starts on January 20.

Alberta Parks, in conjunction with its partners, has created a stellar lineup of guest lecturers for this annual award-winning program that will inspire, inform and engage whether you’re 10 or 110.

Here’s the deal. Alberta Parks, along with the Pincher Creek and District Library Board and the Pincher Creek Community Adult Learning Council, are presenting the 2015 Winter Speaker Series, available by videoconference from participating Alberta municipal libraries or, you can attend live in person at a location below.
