My photo
My practice encompasses a variety of experimental processes that animate both natural and constructed environments, seeking to form connections between culture, nature and place. I am concerned with how physical, tactile interactions in nature can shape our inner experiences and understanding of the world. I currently live and work in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

Wildlife in the Wind Speaker Series

Lethbridge Coulees: Urban Parks and Wildlife Corridor
Mark Goettel and Troy Nickle
Date: March 5, 2013 between 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Lethbridge Public Library - Community Meeting Room
Cost: Free – Everyone is Welcome!

Mark and Troy have been doing weekly walks in the Lethbridge coulees and river valley to document wildlife, plant growth, seasonal changes and biodiversity. The goal of these walks is to publish a book that communicates to the public the beauty that is at their doorstep as well as expressing their concerns about the potential misuse or loss of this natural wonderland. Mark and Troy will discuss their weekly adventures and the importance of the river valley and the coulees as a unique area for Lethbridge residents and importance as a wildlife corridor. Mark Goettel is a retired Insect Pathologist from the Lethbridge Research Centre. Troy Nickle is a local artist whose practice involves creating ephemeral earthworks, sculpture and photography that center on the conceptual associations made between nature, culture and place.
