Winged Partners Still Flying High
Twenty-two years on, Wings Over the Rockies and Adventure Canada continue to collaborate to support the festival and invite patrons to experience exceptional expeditions to some of Canada and the World’s most beautiful, fragile and bird-rich environments.
Bill Swan, a Wings and Adventure Canada co-founder notes “It’s a point of great pride that as a company we support the organizations and events that celebrate, protect and educate people about the magnificent natural heritage we have in Canada. Wings Over the Rockies embodied that ethos and it’s an honour to be a contributor to its success.”
A supporter from day one but beginning over a decade ago, Adventure Canada donates a passage or two on one of it’s expeditions that explore natural and cultural history destinations by small expeditionary cruise ship. Wings auctions off these donated trips at the Wings Gala Dinner with all proceeds going to support the Wings events and school programs. Since 2008 this has generated approximately $75,000 in total financial support.
This year’s expedition auction is a berth for two people aboard Ocean Endeavor on a Circumnavigation of Ireland! A photographer’s paradise, a traveller’s dream, Ireland’s coastlines, abundant seabirds and whales are natural history highlights enjoyed by sea in the company of excellent guides.
To place a bid you will need to attend the Gala Dinner – get your tickets early!
*All Wings Event Registrants this year receive a $1,000 Gift Certificate from Adventure Canada redeemable on eligible expeditions.
