American Alpine Club Member and Grant Award Winner Seth Campbell will present stories from his glacier studies from the Arctic to Antarctic with a focus on changes in Alaska as they relate to classic mountaineering routes such as the West Buttress of Mount McKinley. Seth will mix a bit of glacier and climate sciences with mountaineering in this entertaining story about glacier change. He may even try to persuade you to help him on his next adventure with images of mountain and glacier scenery from around the world. All ages are welcome to attend!
