Oct 02, 2014
Winnipeg, MB

The Elizabeth Dafoe Library and Archives & Special Collections of the University of Manitoba Libraries are pleased to invite you to the opening of a permanent display of a copy of David Thompson’s 1826 map of northwestern North America and the donation of the map’s digital images.

Reception to follow. Please let us know if we can expect to see you at the opening.

The opening will feature donors and researchers Andreas Korsos and David Malaher, who will speak about the fascinating details of the map and their historic journey to transform Thompson’s map into a 21st century research tool. Thompson’s map shows northwest North America from Sault Ste. Marie to the Pacific Ocean in exceptionally large scale, over 10 feet wide and over 6 feet high.  The map contains detailed notes not seen on other maps by Thompson or in his journals. The original map, housed in the National Archives in London, England, has received very little attention since it arrived in the 19th century.  Its excellent physical condition enabled copying by advanced digital processes to achieve very high fidelity.

Roberto Dutesco: The Wild Horses of Sable Island

Until October 13, 2014

The Museum of Natural History is pleased to present Roberto Dutesco: The Wild Horses of Sable Island, a breathtaking and moving exhibit that spans 20 years of iconic photography. 

Sable’s wild horses are the only terrestrial mammals on the Island. Abandoned there by sailors long ago or cast ashore from wrecks on the many sandbars that surround the island, this feral herd has managed to thrive in an austere, unforgiving environment.

Roberto Dutesco is a New York based photographer, poet and film-maker. His short films “Times Square” and “Sable Horses” have been screened at several film festivals, culminating with the award-winning documentary “Chasing Wild Horses”, a CBC /Arcadia Production.

Wheatley , ON

Ontario's 'deep south' provincial park near Leamington is on the same latitude as Northern California. By far, the coolest thing about Wheatley is its annual 'Halloween in the Park' which also takes place on Thanksgiving weekend, October 11-13. Park roads close and about 300 kids trick or treat here every year going from one decked-out campsite to another. The trees and the fishing at Wheatley are pretty cool too. Ontario Parks' new video series, Cool things at Ontario Parks, explains why. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMD4fXllBOs
