Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History is almost finished holding a five-part wildlife series with Wildlife Technician and Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge holder Toni Appleby. She has shared her understanding of the bear, wolf, cougar, and mountain caribou gathered from years working in the bush.

This series has been a big hit with adults and kids alike with lots of artifacts to interact with and a slide show.
