Gunnison County Libraries and Gunnison River Festival
present JONATHAN WATERMAN 7PM
Gunnison Library 307 N Wisconsin Street, Gunnison
Jonathan is mostly known for his time exploring the North, detailed in seven of his twelve books and in journals such as the Washington Post, The New York Times, Adventure, Hooked On the Outdoors, Outside, Backpacker, Climbing, and Rock and Ice. In 2007, he turned his focus to the rivers of the Southwest, beginning with an arduous journey and research project on the Colorado River, and in 2011, with an extensive aerial and repeat photography investigation of 16 diminished rivers (all carrying Colorado River water) from the Rio Grande to the Green.
Jonathan’s talk and slideshow will be about The Colorado River and our own Watershed.
This is a free event, open to the public.
