Presentation with photos: “From Gletscher to Gipfelkreuze: Exploring the natural and cultural landscapes of the Alps” by GMC members Jeff & Diane Munroe.
Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 7:00 PM
Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society, 2 Duane Court, Middlebury, VT
Speaker & program description: Jeff and Diane Munroe are avid hikers and travelers and have lived in Middlebury since 2001. Jeff is Professor of Geology at Middlebury College and Diane coordinates community-based research projects for the College’s Environmental Studies Program. Last year they spent Jeff’s sabbatical year abroad, largely in Austria where Jeff was a Fulbright Visiting Professor at the University of Innsbruck in the spring. During the fall and summer, they traveled extensively across the Alps from France to Slovenia, hiking and exploring modern glacial landscapes and enjoying a range of local cultural experiences.
During their slide presentation, Jeff & Diane will share the beauty and diversity of the Alpine landscape while also exploring the tension they felt experiencing the cultural and natural richness of this region alongside the stark retreat of all of the glaciers they visited.
Accessible parking and nearby parking is available at Middlebury Union High School. Open to the public. Refreshments served. Admission is free. Voluntary donations will support the Green Mountain Club’s Education Program. We hope you can join us on Feb 21st and invite your friends to join you!
