Be Wild: Discover the Rockies at event Thursday

The final installment of The Mountaineers’ Be Wild series is Thursday evening.

I’ve attended two of them so far, and they’ve both been fantastic. (I was out of town for a third, Tami Asar’s talk, and I’m still bummed.)

The final event is with photographer Steven Gnam and wildlife biologist Douglas H. Chadwick. They’ll be presenting a multimedia presentation on the new book, “The Crown of the Continent: The Wildest Rockies.”

I have a copy of the book and I’ve been slowly reading through it. It’s a gorgeous coffee table book with a number of essays. The photography is stunning, and I’m excited to see it on a huge screen at the Mountaineers. The essays discuss connections between the outdoors, culture, history and community. They offer a wide view of an important and diverse natural area.

If you’d like to check out the event, tickets are $18 and you can get them here.
