America’s Great River Journeys with Tim Palmer
June 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Tim Palmer is the award-winning author of 26 books about rivers, conservation, and adventure travel. He is a photographer of America’s natural landscapes and a dynamic, inspiring public speaker. Recently four of his river photos were selected to appear in a new set of 12 USPS Wild & Scenic River Forever stamps that commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic River Act.
An inveterate river-lover, Tim has canoed or rafted on more than 300 rivers in the United States and western Canada. He lived for 22 years as a nomad in his van, traveling throughout the country to do research, writing, and photography for his book projects.
Tim will present a spectacular slide show and talk based on his new book America’s Great River Journeys. Please join us as Tim takes us on a photographic tour of 50 of the finest river trips in America, including the Deschutes, John Day, Rogue and Umpqua.
Tim has been running rivers for five decades and has worked at the center of river conservation efforts the whole time. He was the recipient of American Rivers’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 1988 and many subsequent honors. Paddler magazine named Tim one of the top ten river conservationists of our time and one of the “100 great paddlers of the last century.”
The doors open at 6:00 pm. Program begins at 6:30 pm.
