For our second April talk in the KFPL Live Speakers’ Series we are delighted to host local naturalist, photographer, educator and author Michael Runtz. Michael’s latest book, Algonquin Wild, his twelfth, showcases Algonquin Park through all four seasons. Published in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of the park, the book offers insights not only into the lives of Algonquin’s best-known wildlife, like loons, wolves, bears and moose, but also dragonflies, butterflies and tiny creatures like snow fleas and snow scorpionflies.
Drawing upon his many years as an interpretive naturalist, Michael’s highly visual presentation will explore the remarkable diversity of creatures, habitats and ecosystems found within Algonquin’s boundaries. Copies of the book Algonquin Wild will also be available for purchase at the event.
This presentation on Algonquin Wild with Michael Runtz will take place at the Isabel Turner branch on Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. and is open to adults and teens only. There is no admission charge, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance at events.kfpl.ca (or by phone at 613-549-8888) as of 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 6.
