On Tuesday October 10, at 7:00 PM ET, author and National Geographic Explorer Jon Waterman will present on his just released book National Geographic Atlas of Wild America at the National Conservation Training Center, Byrd Auditorium, 698 Conservation Way, Shepherdstown, WV.

From the deep forests of the Canadian Northwest to the red-rock deserts of the American Southwest, North America offers a myriad of opportunities for hiking, camping, trekking, and simply enjoying the abundance of the natural world. The Atlas of Wild America highlights 41 of those wilderness locations. Waterman explores the fascinating history of the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, fossil remains on the Upper Missouri River, the rainforest canopy of Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, and Grand Canyon Parashat’s Dark Sky Park. Waterman also explores the joys and impacts of humans on these last wild places.

Waterman is the author of 14 books, including several award-winning titles. Over the last 40 years of his unique writing career, he has specialized in first-person immersion during arduous adventures; environmental reportage on subjects ranging from Arctic oil development to the Colorado River; and scores of in-depth profiles. He has worked as an editor, a filmmaker, and a photographer.
