Survivorman Les Stroud is back

Survivorman;

 Les Stroud’s passion for the Earth is inspiring.

Not many talented artists will put this front & center.
With every song, every film and every story Les guides the listener through a celebration, a cautioning and a call to action to protect our Mother Earth. His guitar lays down the foundation for a powerful voice that assures you he means what he says. He is known as the ‘Hendrix of Harmonica’, with world-class skills utilized by the likes of Slash, Journey, Alice Cooper and Jonny Lang amongst many others. All of this, combined with a powerful film presentation, make his performances a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.

Canada 150 and Gamiing will be celebrating this during the year with variius programs.

Our theme is:"Honouring our past - Educating our present - Preserving our future

From native history stories told around the fire in the wigwam or teepee, to learning more about sustainable actions we undertake here: meetings in the strawbale house which is powered by solar, or learning more about the windpower that is powering other buildings at Gamiing,  or the large solar panels and the work we do to preserve the future by planting another 1000 trees to capture CO2, rehabilitating our wetland to support species at risk find new habitats.

Come join us during the  year. We will update our website and Facebook with events and actions.
