"The Career of an Adventure-Conservationist,” Jonathan Waterman, award-winning author and wilderness explorer
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

The series takes place every Tuesday at 7:00pm-8:20pm in Gallagher Business Building Room 122 on the UM campus.

Jonathan Waterman has worked as a wilderness guide, magazine editor, park ranger,  but  is renowned for unprecedented mountaineering ascents, long river descents, and arduous wilderness traverses—such as his solo of the Northwest Passage, winter ascent of Denali’s Cassin Ridge, or source to sea descent of the Colorado River.  His twelve books include Northern Exposures: An Adventuring Career In Stories and Images (Snowy Owl Books, 2013), Running Dry: A Journey From Source to Sea Down the Colorado River (National Geographic Books, 2010), and Arctic Crossing (Knopf, 2001).  The recognition for his work includes magazine awards, a Special Achievement Award from the National Park Service,  a literary fellowship from the National Endowment for the arts, and an Emmy.  Waterman’s upcoming lecture “The Career of An Adventure-Conservationist” is based on his journeys and environmental advocacy--featuring an hour’s worth of his story telling, images, and video; a book signing will follow the lecture.

As usual, these lectures are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  UM students may receive credit for the series by registering for NRSM 371, CRN 30257.
