On March 19, renowned filmmakers John and Janet Foster present Stories from the Wild, the fourth chapter in the Winter Speaker Series hosted by the Hastings Stewardship Council.
In this presentation, they will be sharing personal stories, slides, and videos drawn from wildlife encounters on their rough old farm in Hastings County. John and Janet’s farm represents the diversity of landscape and wildlife that characterizes much of this county. These are local tales everyone can relate to, including funny and endearing rendezvous with wild turkeys, deer, raccoons, a barred owl, and many others with whom they share a rich rural habitat.
John and Janet are television producers, cinematographers, and still photographers specializing in natural science television programs and nature photography. They have hosted many nature programs for television, including the CBC series To the Wild Country and Wild Canada.
Stories from the Wild: All are welcome on Thursday, March 19 at 7 pm at Huntingdon Veterans Community Hall on 11379 Highway 62 in Ivanhoe, Ontario (just north of the Ivanhoe cheese factory). An entrance fee of $5.00 (or a donation) will help cover costs; children are free. For information, contact Matt Caruana at 613-391-9034 or email@example.com.

When in my late teens and later when an adult I watched your shows when ever I could but they are greatly missed.

I attended this event, or one just like it a few years later, and it was the first time I met John and Janet after their marvellous multimedia presentation for a sell-out audience. Now, in 2021, I find myself collaborating with these legendary filmmaker-photographers on a book we are publishing next fall about Hastings County, Ontario, which runs from the Bay of Quinte, Lake Ontario, to the edge of Algonquin Park. We just published another book which is part of the A2A region called “A Four Seasons County Prince Edward”. You can find it for sale online. A portion of the proceeds go to the local land stewardship group to protect wild areas.
