The Riverwood Conservancy is one of Mississauga’s best and most underrated event hot-spots. No matter the season, the Conservancy runs events on a weekly basis to bring you closer to nature and remind us that we take part in something much bigger than our daily lives.

Carrying on that tradition, The Riverwood Conservancy will host a talk by Dave Taylor on Tuesday, January 23rd, at the Chappell House. The talk will take place from 7:00 PM and last until 8:30 PM.

Riverwood often boasts the expertise of those conducting the hikes or talks, but Dave Taylor is perhaps extra special. Here is a little excerpt about Dave:

Dave Taylor is a wildlife photographer and the author of more than 40 books and several magazine articles on wildlife and ecology. As a highly regarded wildlife photographer, Dave also focuses his efforts on producing educational videos and material about wildlife for school curriculums.

Dave has travelled throughout the world capturing nature with his camera. He frequently visits Tanzania where he guides wildlife safaris and where his Tanzanian drivers have given him the nickname “The Professor”.

Dave is also an avid public speaker who frequently speaks to local naturalist clubs and other organizations that have a keen interest for nature.

And so it is with decades of experience and a seemingly endless well of knowledge that Dave will swing by The Riverwood Conservancy to give an in-depth talk about predators and prey. The talk will see Dave explore “the dramatic and often humorous world of predators and their prey. Despite an impressive set of skills and weapons, the outcome of a hunt is never a foregone conclusion.”

Dave’s talks are a fascinating listen, even if you aren’t a nature nut. If you find yourself enjoying a good David Attenborough documentary, then you’ll be right at home with Dave Taylor. If you’re interested and wish to partake in the event, registration can be completed here.
