Learn about public engagement in conservation in Canada

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) comes to the Telus World of Science on April 12 for a lively discussion about public engagement in conservation.

Revisit a sold-out Fringe hit

Going To St. Ives was a sold-out hit at the 2012 Edmonton Fringe, and the production starring Belinda Cornish and Patricia Darbasie returns to the stage April 5 to 14. In the story, what appears to be two bright women having tea is soon revealed to be something far more complex and meaningful.
