CPAWS National Tour Underway to Promote Yukon Wilderness Conservation
CPAWS’ 12 city tour featuring the Three Rivers, the Wind, the Snake and the Bonnet Plume in the Yukon’s Peel watershed kicked off April 11 in Montreal. By May 17 it will have visited 12 cities from coast to coast. During each show, Yukon conservationist Juri Peepre shares stories and spectacular still and video footage of trips taken down the rivers in the summer of 03 by Canadian artists, members of the Gwitchin First Nations and conservationists, all in the cause of protecting this pristine yet threatened part of Canada’s Boreal wilderness.
In April and May 2007, CPAWS will bring alive the Yukon’s majestic Peel River watershed to Canadians across the country, in support of conserving one of the world’s great wilderness areas.
Join guest speaker Juri Peepre, long-time CPAWS Yukon conservationist, as he presents an award-winning art film and talk on the Three Rivers of Yukon’s Peel watershed — the Snake, the Wind and the Bonnet Plume — one of the last amazing wild places on earth. Don’t miss spectacular images, original music and the eloquent voices of Aboriginal peoples, artists and conservationists who spent a remarkable summer journeying to this remote yet threatened wilderness.
