The Online Journal of Brian Keating, check here for breaking news & exciting stories!
Encouraging young people to hike, canoe and camp in our Canadian outdoors is something Brian has talked about for years, using his presentations as a tool of inspiration. He recently presented one of his talks to some 500 Calgary Junior Forest Wardens, a keen group of young outdoor enthusiasts and nature keeners. Pictured here with Brian are the organizers of the event, who are only a few of the inspirational leaders of their respective young Junior Forest Warden club members.

During Brian’s most recent trip to Churchill, Manitoba he saw and counted fifteen healthy polar bears! Listen to Brian’s latest segment on the CBC’s The Homstretch, where he speaks on how these spectacular bears survive arctic temperatures, as well as some of the issues they are facing today.
“The evening of the day Brian and his group returned to the hotel in Arusha after their successful Kilimanjaro climb, he sent this photo onward to Carolyn, the daughter of Barb, one of the very proud 26 Calgary Health Trust climbers. Her daughters response, as posted on her Facebook site:
“My mom made it to the top of Kilimanjaro today… Talk about inspirational parenting!”
Barb commented in a recent email to Brian: ‘I cried when I read it – just as I cried when I reached Uhuru Peak’.
With the weather cooling off, Homestretch naturalist Brian Keating talks about the annual southern migration of geese.

Thank you so much for your generous donation of Celestron Binoculars to the Children In The Wilderness Programme which we received from our Hwange Camps recently. Your note indicated that you would like these binoculars to be given to a child on the CITW programme. We work with eight different schools in Hwange, Lukosi, Dete & Victoria Falls (approximately 2815 children) and I’m sure you can appreciate that it’s difficult to try and single out one student over & above the rest, however one of our programmes has included the implementation of Eco Clubs at the schools we work with. We feel these binoculars would be perfect to donate to a deserving school’s Eco Club so that a group of eco-conscious children can share the benefit of your fabulous gift. Thank you so much for considering CITW, we really do appreciate your contribution and have no doubt they will bring many hours of joy & enlightenment to the children that are lucky enough to receive them.
