CANYON CITY - Eerie bumps in the night? Unexplained noises or moved objects in your home or place? Northwest Paranormal Investigations (NWPI) may have the explanation.
Ghost hunting through the use of technology and historical research will be discussed Wednesday, July 29, in a program at the Canyon City Community Hall on South Washington Street.
The program will begin at 7 p.m. and will be led by team members of the paranormal investigation organization.
They will share stories of experiences they've had in the Northwest and in Eastern Oregon searching - and allegedly finding - ghosts.
"Our primary goal is ghost hunting with a scientific edge. We take offense to the Hollywood version of being referred to as ghostbusters," said Robert Chamberlain, founder of the Portland-based NWPI.
"In our investigations we take hundreds of photos and video footage, analyzing each and every one, sometimes spending hours doing this. We have team members who also specialize in electronic voice phenomena," he said. "We do not cleanse, use Ouija boards, or perform exorcisms. We simply enjoy the hunt of the spirits."
The free program, open to all ages, will include a slide show, photos, recordings of paranormal phenomena through electronic voice equipment, and a question and answer period.
Four NWPI representatives who have been trained in paranormal investigations present the program and answer questions.
The program is part of the regional "A Sense of Place" series of programs in the arts, sciences and humanities sponsored by Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO) and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
