Wilderness Thru-hiking to Wilderness Advocacy: A Transformation after One Year on the Trail
Presentation at 8:00 PM Monday, November 28, SUNY Potsdam
After nearly 7,000 miles of thru-hiking, a local Adirondack resident returned from the trail with blistered reflections and an inclination towards advocacy.
Tyler Socash, the Adirondack Mountain Club’s Wilderness Trip Leader, presents his transformation from outdoor activity to outdoor advocacy after completing the Pacific Crest Trail, Te Araroa across New Zealand, and the Appalachian Trail.
With the trail behind him, Tyler will share his next great challenge of protecting the remaining wild spaces of New York State. SUNY Potsdam students and area residents have the privilege of joining the public process of protecting the most magnificent addition to the Forest Preserve — Boreas Ponds.
Tyler’s Talk will be held at the SUNY Potsdam Barrington Union Fire Side Lounge at 8:00PM on Monday, November 28, 2016.
