The Friends of the Dunsford Library invite all wildlife enthusiasts to attend the fourth talk in their Kawartha Speaker Series where a talented photographer will show his impressive images of local animal and bird life.

On August 20, Dave Ellis, a well-known wildlife photographer, based in the Omemee area, will share his collection of images of our colourful Kawartha wildlife—from the red fox, to the snowy owl, to the green heron. He has photographed all of them and many more species, with the help of his wife Astrid. Both outdoor lovers, they spend long hours driving country roads or waiting in the bush, where their patience and keen observation are sometimes rewarded with another great photograph. Now Dave Ellis will share these images with the public as he tells his tales of hunting for wildlife with a camera.

The aim of the Kawartha Speaker Series is to help keep Dunsford—and its library—on the map by highlighting the area’s rich heritage, both natural and historical. All are invited to attend this illustrated and family-friendly talk by Dave Ellis on “Our Colourful Kawartha Wildlife” to be held at the Dunsford Branch of the Kawartha Lakes Library, located in the Dunsford Community Centre, from 7 to 9 pm on August 20. Admission is by donation to the Friends of the Dunsford Library. Pre-registration is encouraged at 705-793-3037 or to
