Adventure Speaker Series: Cassandra Overby - Explore Europe on Foot

According to author and expert traveler Cassandra Overby, there’s no better way to discover Europe than by getting off the beaten path and exploring it on foot with a hike. Cassandra will take you step-by-step through the travel process: how to choose the route that’s right for you, what to pack, how to find accommodations and food, how to deal with challenges along the way and much more. She’ll also introduce you to her favorite trails in Europe, with itineraries ranging from one to fifteen days. From classics such as the Tour du Mont Blanc in France and Italy and the English Way in Spain to lesser-known routes such as Portugal’s Rota Vicentina and Germany’s Moselsteig Trail, each route will leave you more inspired to embark on your own cultural hiking adventure—and itching to buy a plane ticket to Europe.

It's an extraordinary journey through the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park going back to millions of years of rugged geology and glacier scarred landscape. It provides a host of diverse animals and plants. Six Mountaineers from various chapters took six days, covering a total distance of 43 miles, with approximately another 10 miles for side trips climbing the Labyrinth and Mount Acropolis."

Naturalists Study Group Lecture 3, 2019-2020

Patti Happe, Wildlife Branch Chief, Olympic National Park, will speak about the relocation of mountain goats from Olympic National Park to the North Cascades. This project is an effort to remove the goats from the Olympics, where they are not native, and reestablish goats in the Cascades, where they once roamed. She previously spoke to The Mountaineers about reestablishment of fisher populations in Olympic National Park (a successful program that has since been expanded to the Cascades).

Adventure Speaker Series: Ras and Kathy Vaughan - UP North Loop: 2600 Miles, the Inland N.W.

Ras and Kathy Vaughan found the Pacific Crest Trail a little too crowded. So they came up with a new long distance hike that would take them on smaller trails in a giant loop through Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Idaho. The couple recently completed the loop and, for Kathy, it was the first time doing a long distance hike since she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Join Ras & Kathy for an evening of laughter, information and inspiration.
