Part of the monthly Sunday afternoon winter workshop series.
Winter Survival Skills

Lee-Anne Walker came as an interpretive naturalist for the summer in 1983 and never left. Teaching natural history for the local college mountain adventure program, she has worked as an eco-tour guide guiding hikes, snowshoe tours, canoe trips and step-on-bus tours. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of Fernie's natural and human history will inspire a unique sense of place.
