What's Happening at the Ecology Centre!


How does one go from English villager to wilderness dweller? Chris Czajkowski built a cabin beside an untouched high-altitude lake in remote British Columbia wilderness. She called her secluded paradise Nuk Tessli and lived there for 23 years. Chris began writing about her wilderness adventures in 1980. Her latest book, And the River Still Sings, explores the experiences that led Chris to a solitary lifestyle and her transition to a life closer to the grid.
