Award-winning photographer and publisher Mark Zelinski presents a slideshow of images and stories that bring exquisite focus to the environmental treasures of the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, celebrating the diverse communities that thrive along its rugged, curving path. Its aquifers and ecosystems support hundreds of at-risk species that coexist alongside the most densely populated and heavily developed region in Canada. Also included in this presentation are images from Mark’s 80-country BOOKS THAT HEAL INITIATIVE.
