Friday, January 24: Climbing Mt. Robson          At 12,972 feet, Mt. Robson is the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies. It is also considered the most prominent peak in the North American Rockies Range with its nearly 10,000 feet of pure vertical ascent on its southern face. Due to the vertical ascent, changing weather, avalanches, ice and rock fall, this is one of the most challenging mountains to climb with just a 10% success rate. Join Shawn McAllister as he shares his journey to British Columbia to climb Mt. Robson.

Their lights saved countless lives from fisherman, freighters, and passenger ships. Today this critical function is performed by automated lights, radar, and Global Position Systems. Yet lighthouses remain fixed both physically on our rocky shoreline and also in our imagination. Built to ensure safety at sea for all who see their light, perhaps no other type of structure built by humans reflect such altruistic intentions. Join Andrew Washburn, Vice President of the Cape Decision Lighthouse Society and Museum Registrar at the Alaska State Museum, who brings a multifaceted perspective to the subject of Alaska Lighthouses. 


 Friday, February 28:  Diplomacy in the Field: USFS International Programs        Thanks to the work and travels of Chief Gifford Pinchot, the Forest Service has been working to provide technical assistance internationally since 1902!  During this presentation, Leslie Swada will give a brief overview of the program, and share her recent experiences working in 2 very different locations: the remote Amazonas region of Brazil, and the city of Minsk, Belarus in Eastern Europe.
