Event description

Description

From clearing the prairies with fire to planting elm trees along our streets, humans have been shaping the land in the Edmonton area for millennia. And it's been shaping us right back.

Join us for an afternoon of short talks at a live recording of the podcast Let's Find Out. Ever wondered how Edmontonians helped create the river valley parks? Curious about how lawns mould the locals who live nearby? We'll share short stories about how humans and nature have shaped each other in our city.

At the end of the day, you’ll be able to throw in your own questions about humans and nature for the next season of Let’s Find Out!

Let's Find Out is an award-winning monthly podcast hosted by Chris Chang-Yen Phillips. Each episode, we take questions from curious Edmontonians about local history. Then we find out the answers together.

This event is presented by Taproot Edmonton, a member-supported home for curiosity-driven local journalism in the Edmonton area. Become a member and you’ll get a $5 discount on your ticket.

This event will be recorded for Let's Find Out.

The Almanac has one step at the front entrance, with easier access from the alley. This event is all ages, and drinks will be available at the bar. All-gender washroom facilities will be available.

Doors will be open at 1:30 PM, and the event will begin at 2 PM.

Let's Find Out is a member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.
