Steven Buyck with his wife, Nacho Nyäk Dun Citizen, Mayo, Yukon

Join us at the Yukon Arts Centre for the opening of a special exhibit about the Peel Watershed. Light snacks and refreshments will be available.

This collaboration between the Yukon Conservation Society (YCS), CPAWS Yukon, the First Nation of Na Cho Nyäk Dün, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation and the Teetl'it Gwich’in Council features some of the many people whose lives are intertwined with the Peel Watershed.

The exhibit is a small showing of the many interviews and portrait sessions conducted in the four communities surrounding the Peel Watershed: Mayo, Dawson City, Old Crow, and Teetl'it Zheh (Fort McPherson) as well as the city of Whitehorse. It features short excerpts from individual interviews alongside stunning portrait, wildlife and landscape photographs by Cathie Archbould and Peter Mather.
