The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Explorer to present at The Conservation Alliance

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Thursday, June 25, 2015/Categories: natural history, art and design, environment, Archive Pick of the Week

Eric Larsen  is a explorer, guide, and environmental educator. He has spent the past 20 years traveling thru some of the most extreme environments on the planet. In the process Larsen has completed more polar expeditions than any other American. He will be presenting the  Last North Expedition  in Salt Lake City to a conservation audience in early August. The lecture is sponsored by the outdoor sports organization The Conservation Alliance.

According to the announcement, in May 2014 Eric Larsen and a companion reached the geographic North Pole, completing a 480-mile land-to-pole unsupported and unaided from Canada's Ellesmere Island. The journey could easily be called one of the most difficult expeditions on the planet. The trek across the Arctic pack ice may be the last of it's kind due to a rapidly changing climate in the Arctic.

Larsen's presentation, Colder,  will be a dramatic retelling of the 2104 expedition with added stories from two decades of extreme adventure travel by the Colorado-based explorer. From first-hand accounts, Larsen will share how these once vast frozen wildernesses are being affected by climate change.

For those who will be attending the outdoor industry bi-annual tradeshow or happen to be in Salt Lake City, this is a unique opportunity to here a polar account in person. In the past, explorer's have often quipped, because it's there, in describing why to go to a remote location. Eric Larsen's tre
k stands in stark contrast, because it might not be there much longer. Details are available at The Conservation Alliance website.
