The wild Purcell Mountains have long been filled with adventurers, photographers and rabble rousers. Wildsight is proud to present Our Wild Purcells, a multimedia event celebrating the grassroots efforts that created the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy 40 years ago and inspiring action to protect these rugged mountains into the future.
The evening will be hosted by award-winning author and photographer, Dave Quinn, and will feature vintage photos and tales from wild landscapes: from the stunning geography of the towering mountains in the central Purcells to the ancient forests in the north and the Mallandaine wilderness area in the south.
“The Purcell Wilderness Conservancy is an immense legacy, achieved by passionate people coming together because of their love of the wild. It’s a story that inspires me daily and it will surely inspire you to celebrate the wild Purcells and stand up for this landscape we all love so deeply,” said Robyn Duncan, Wildsight’s Executive Director.
Our Wild Purcells will tour both sides of the Purcell Mountains in March. The tour will be stopping in Kimberley onat Centre 64 and in Cranbrook on at the College of the Rockies Lecture Theatre.
Both shows are at wildsight.ca/ourwildpurcells.and are by donation. More details can be found at
