Windsor – Due to overwhelming response, the Essex Region Conservation Foundation has announced the David Suzuki book tour event on June 22nd is sold out.
“We are thrilled with the response from our community to join us in welcoming David Suzuki to our region with his book tour,” said Richard Wyma, Executive Director. “Hosting this event is a great way to remind not only the next generation of environmentalists, but all of us that every effort we make, takes us closer to our goal of a sustainable environment.”
Through a sponsorship from Windsor Family Credit Union, this presentation will also be available for a live webcast in high-definition at no charge to all interested schools and the general public, allowing everyone to hear his inspiring message on living with courage, conviction and passion.

The webcast can be see here, both live at 10:00 a.m. and after the event.
