In the last Beaty@Home session of summer 2021, dive into the biodiversity and importance of rivers. We are thrilled to be joined by Dr. Rick Taylor, Professor of Zoology at UBC and Director of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum’s Fish Collection. Learn about the incredible impact of rivers, his upcoming book and the work that went into it.

As we get ready for World Rivers Day in September, we encourage you to reflect on your favourite river stories and share them during today’s session.

Visit Rick’s website to learn more about his work, including his upcoming book Rivers Run Through Us: A Natural and Human History of Great Rivers of North America.
