The Chilkoot Trail: Then and Now

On November 15, the Saskatoon Nature Society hosted their November monthly meeting (open to all) on campus in the Biology Lecture Theatre, near the big dinosaurs.

This month's speaker was Bill Waiser, invited for his expertise in western and northern Canadian history, who spoke on "The Chilkoot Trail: Then and Now". In addition to discussing the historical significance of this famous trail, he mentioned what hikers can experience on the trail today.

After a Q and A, homemade cookies, tea and coffee were provided, along with a chance to meet fellow nature-lovers.

A good time was had by all--including the dinosaurs listening from outside the theatre.
