The premiere release of Avian Summer will now take place online allowing viewers from around the world to enjoy it from the comfort of home.

A live Question & Answer with Rick Andrews will also take place on June 25 starting at 8:00pm Mountain Standard Time on the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Facebook page.

“I always enjoy screening my films for local audiences and answering questions they may have. But this year, the pandemic has created a unique opportunity for us to showcase the diversity of avian wildlife that make their summer homes in Southern Alberta, to a world-wide audience,” says Rick Andrews, local wildlife photographer and film maker.

Rick Andrews is a conservation wildlife photographer and film maker from Southern Alberta. His videos and photos help audiences connect with the diversity of wildlife in our region while encouraging the protection, conservation, and restoration of our natural world for the ongoing enjoyment of future generations.

Rick Andrews has developed a collection of films showcasing resident wildlife in Southern Alberta, including the full-length documentary Wildlife of the Oldman River Valley (2018), as well as several documentary shorts including: Great Horned Owls (2020), Country Club Marmots (2019), and Lethbridge Wild Turkeys (2018).

“As a community we are lucky to have Rick Andrews actively document our local wildlife in such a spectacular way,” says Curtis Goodman, Resource Development Coordinator with the Helen Schuler Nature Centre, “it helps residents and visitors to connect with our wild neighbours and appreciate how truly amazing ‘here’ is!”

Proceeds from the digital film premiere of Avian Summer will benefit the Growing the Grassroots Endowment Fund in support of nature-based interpretive programming at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Your support of Avian Summer will benefit the Nature Centre as it grows with our community. Additional donations can be made online directly to the Friends of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Society at
