Using her photos from La Paz, she will explore the common needs of humans, birds and animals for home, food, companionship and finding her own beauty and peace.
“A splash of colour, a scene that unfolds before me…I take pictures of everything. My pictures are the stories that I will remember over time. I hope that you will enjoy my stories of La Paz through some of the photographs that I have taken.”

Geothermal energy is often touted as a natural resource that can provide vast amounts of clean, low-carbon energy for heating or electricity generation, yet Canada lags other nations when it comes to geothermal energy resource development.
This talk will explore the scientific and technical fundamentals behind different geothermal systems as well as potential environmental and socioeconomic issues, enabling audience members to better assess the challenges and opportunities for geothermal energy in Alberta.
