Kee Dewdney Memorial

Man looking up into the distance; blue skies in and tree branches in backgroundJoin us to commemorate Alexander Keewatin Dewdney. We all knew him simply as ‘Kee’ and he was one of a kind. Kee was a filmmaker, mathematician, computer scientist, author, and conservationist. Kee and his late wife Patricia donated the 100-acre Newport Forest to Thames Talbot Land Trust in 2007.

We will be gathering in the meadow at Newport Forest on Sunday, May 12, 2024 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Guests are invited to sit under the shaded protection of a tent while speeches occur. There will be refreshments available as well as the opportunity to go on a hike through Newport Forest to see the Bluebells. The full program will be available closer to the event.

Before RSVPing, please fill out this form (4 questions) about transportation and parking.

IMPORTANT: Parking is NOT permitted on the road. Parking will be made available in the Newport Forest meadow. Priority will be given to those with accessibility needs. Some off-site/shuttle options may be available once the parking area is full. Please carpool if possible.
