On Thursday, November 4, 2010, I'll have the honor of sharing some of my favorite expeditions with any and all interested at a fundraiser for the Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT).
Covering some 2,000 square miles of stunning land in Colorado - from Evergreen and Conifer in the east to Georgetown and Fairplay in the west - MALT "promotes the preservation of lands important for maintaining the integrity of our water quality, protecting wildlife habitats and agricultural lands, and creating regional parks for outdoor recreation." MALT does great work, conserving land for varied use through conservation easements, public projects, and other initiatives. Since 1992, MALT has managed to protect over 14,000 acres of land in Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Park counties.
On Thursday, I'll be helping MALT with an outreach event and fundraiser. The evening will begin with a VIP reception at 5:45 - 6:45 PM. The doors will then open to the public, and at 7:00 PM I'll present my Three Favorite Expeditions show, which takes the audience on a fun journey from South Georgia Island to remote Gurla Mandhata, and on to the North Face of Everest for a step back in time. Below is a little video of some of the images from this presentation:
But, most importantly, this is an event to support a great organization - the Mountain Area Land Trust. So, if you're in the area, please come out to Evergreen Thursday night to support MALT, and hopefully have some fun in the process!
