David Edwards: guest speaker on the Grand Canyon'A Ranger at the Grand Canyon' talk

I worked as a National Park Ranger in the Grand Canyon, responsible for explaining its natural wonder to visitors and leading nature hikes. I explored and photographed much of the Canyon, and have made several return visits. This talk will give insights only obtainable from someone who knows this fascinating region intimately.

From the earliest peoples to live there, the first Europeans to discover it and its subsequent history, I will surprise and entertain. Beautiful flowers, treefrogs, the area's spectacular geology, history, and wildlife will all be explored. I will also detail the threats to this World Heritage Site and what remedies are being undertaken.

"...your splendid talk on the Grand Canyon. There was a buzz of excitement from members afterwards and demands that we invite you back soon, which I hope to do. Your comprehensive presentation of the Grand Canyon, covering so many aspects, historical, environmental, geographical and personal experiences made for a fascinating evening. Very many thanks again."
Jacky Fox, The Bowdon Sixty Club
"I'd like to thank you for a fascinating account of your time in the Grand Canyon National Park. We had an excellent attendance yesterday and I think you guessed how engaged everyone was from their responses and reaction to your talk. There have been requests for a return visit so I will be in contact again next year. The photography was great and the depth and breadth of your knowledge and experience was very evident. The lively delivery also adds to the presentation."
