“Going Wild in the National Parks” is a showcase of America’s most spectacular landscapes that invites newcomers and longtime park visitors alike to experience these magnificent places with fresh eyes. Using an inspiring collection of maps, graphics, and photographs, former ranger Jon Waterman gives an insider-adventurer perspective on the national parks, highlighting wildlife, unique histories, and future challenges. Based on Jon’s bestselling Atlas of the National Parks (National Geographic 2019) the author provides an intimate look into what makes the national park idea so special. A “Q and A” discussion and book signing will follow his lecture.
Jon Waterman has worked as a wilderness guide, magazine editor, park ranger, and guard-dog agitator. He is renowned for unprecedented mountaineering ascents, long river descents, and arduous wilderness traverses—such as his solo of the Northwest Passage, winter ascent of Denali’s Cassin Ridge, or source to sea descent of the Colorado River. The National Geographic Society has frequently supported his journeys. His fourteen books include Chasing Denali (Lyons Press, 2018), Running Dry: A Journey From Source to Sea Down the Colorado River (National Geographic Books, 2010), and Arctic Crossing (Knopf, 2001). The recognition for his work includes magazine awards, a Special Achievement Award from the National Park Service, a literary fellowship from the National Endowment for the arts, and an Emmy. For more info, please see
