Tuesday May 1st, 2012 – Annual Guest Night featuring guest speaker John Acorn

This meeting is the Club’s Annual Guest Night – so bring your partner, or other
interested folks, be they family or friends. It will undoubtedly be a very intertaining evening as our featured speaker this year is John Acorn, from the Department of Renewable Resources, Faculty of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences at the UofA. You will be familiar with John as host of his acclaimed TV series “Acorn, The Nature Nut”, a family-oriented how-to-be-a-naturalist show, or his travel show for bird watchers “Twits and Pishers”. John has an extensive list of accomplishments and awards, having written 17 books and well-received field guides, being video host for the galleries of the Royal Tyrell Museum, having received two national television Gemini nominations, and having received many professional awards. A native Edmontonian, John currently teaches at the University of Alberta, is actively involved in entomological research, and travels widely as a lecturer. John’s presentation is titled “Sight, Sound, Trout and Bugs”. John’s extensive knowledge and superb presentation talents mean this will be a most entertaining and informative session.
