TED Talks at the Banff Public Library

TED Talks @ the Banff Public Library!!

Join them this Wednesday, May 18. This month’s TED Talk will include two videos on “Recreation”. From the High Line of New York to the beauty of Israel’s majestic landscape.  Powerful and inspirational talks that show the positive influence recreation can have over our lives. We promise that after this session you will look at recreating in the mountains through a different lens.

Presented by one of the recreational team from the Town of Banff. Light refreshments will be provided. Bring the family!
