This trip combines spring in Montana’s backcountry with a discussion about climate change with Dr. Steve Running, a 2004 Nobel Prize Winner. A four-day, three-night hiking trip, this stock-supported adventure take place in the North Fork of the Sun River, with a base camp that’s home to a cozy wall tent and wood-burning stove. During our time in the North Fork, we’ll explore the area on day hikes from our base camp, as well as discuss climate change and the impacts it has on nature and society with Dr. Running.
Dr. Running is a riveting, upbeat, charismatic speaker. He’s also a regents professor at the University of Montana and has been appointed to the NASA Advisory Council Science Committee. This trip provides a rare opportunity to hike and hang out around the campfire with a world-renowned scientist, who also happens to be a lot of fun.
If you want to broaden your intellectual horizons, enjoy a mellow pace and explore the North Fork in spring, this is the trip for you.
