This is a space open to all that may emerge as we process together—whether that's tears, laughter, numbness, anger, silence, hope, or anything in between. Please note the library will be open for this event only. No other library services will be available.

  7. Naturalist Journeys: 7,000 Miles to a Wilderness Ethic by Tyler Socash

    February 21, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ NBNC

    Tyler Socash is the Adirondack Mountain Club’s Education Programs Coordinator. He believes in fostering a personal connection with our public lands through exposure, education, and stewardship. The day after completing his master’s degree at the University of Rochester, Socash embarked on a 7,000-mile thru-hiking journey across the Pacific Crest Trail, Te Araroa in New Zealand, and the Appalachian Trail. This grand immersion into wilderness inspired him to defend rare wildlife habitats in New York State’s Adirondack Park. He sits on the board of the Adirondack Wilderness Advocates, which promotes the intangibles of wildness and their benefits to humanity. In an effort to meld humor with conservation efforts, Socash also co-created and co-hosts Foot Stuff Podcast, which spotlights outdoor adventure, antics, and activism around the country.
