4/21: Breaking Trail: Presentation by Arlene BlumBreaking Trail: Mountains and Molecules
Special Presentation by Arlene Blum
April 21, Tues., 7 p.m.
The Tacoma Mountaineers clubhouse, 2302 N. 30th St.
Arlene Blum, author, mountaineer, and environmental scientist, played a leading role in more than twenty successful mountaineering expeditions. Plus she carried out research and policy work leading to the reduction of toxic chemicals in consumer products.
In her dramatic slide lecture Blum shares the best photos and stories from her memoir, "Breaking Trail: A Climbing Life," illustrating both her scientific research and her mountaineering expeditions to the world's highest and most dangerous mountains. Blum's most recent expeditions are metaphorical, working with academics, industry, governments and NGOs to protect human health and the global environment from toxic chemicals.
Arlene Blum's personal stories and stunning photographs -- some of which have illustrated her articles in National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines -- combine for an unforgettable presentation.
Admission is FREE.
She will also be giving a talk at UWT that day 12:30-1:30 pm on her advocacy work through her non-profit Green Science Policy Institute and all are welcome to attend.
