This Earth Day, join Canadian adventurer, author, and underwater explorer Jill Heinerth for an exciting multimedia presentation at The Spire.

Heinerth’s presentation, Exploration Files – From Innerspace to Outer Space, will take guests through her exciting, ongoing career as one of the world’s most accomplished underwater explorers on Sunday, Apr. 21, 2024 at 2 p.m.

“I’m going to take the audience on a wild ride through a fast-paced multimedia show that tells the story of earth before man and connects us to our water planet in a deep and visceral way. From underwater caves to future space technology, my presentation will reveal our interconnections with water and responsibility to explore,” Heinerth said.

Through her work with National Geographic and dozens of scientific research organizations, Heinerth has explored the farthest reaches of our oceans, lakes, and aquifers, cataloging new species, discovering biomes, and documenting human impact in even the most remote places on our planet.

An important aspect of environmentalism is the development of appreciation for the natural world. Through this multimedia presentation, Heinerth will show attendees the beauty in the depths of our world, will help young and old understand our water systems and environment, and hopefully inspire the audience to be the change we need to save our planet.

“Earth Day at The Spire is perfect for young and old. Jill has written a best-selling children’s book, The Aquanaut, and presents with the imagery and energy to engage younger audiences,” organizers stated.

“We need to inspire our future generations to protect our planet. This Earth Day presentation is geared to astound all ages and hopefully inspire our young people to become protectors of our ocean, lakes, and waterways.”

Heinerth has strong ties to the wider Kingston area. She grew up in Picton, and is a regular diver and explorer in our local waterways and lake. Her parents are both Queen’s University graduates, and her mother was a Fort Henry employee throughout her early life.

After the presentation, event attendees are invited to explore a huge interactive and walkable water systems map, and engage with a water conservation art installation presented by Kingston Youth Climate Action. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet with partnering environmental and sustainability organizations, Sandy Pines Wildlife Recue, Sustainable Kingston, and the Royal Geographic Society, and learn more about our planet and important water systems.

The Spire is located at 82 Sydenham Street in downtown Kingston in the historic former Sydenham Street United Church. Tickets for the Earth Day event are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting TheSpireKingston.org.
