From 7pm until 8pm

At Nature Learning Center, Albany

A misread map, a sudden storm, or forgotten headlamp can all turn a leisurely hike into a treacherous endeavor. Sandy Stott, writer and editor for AMC’s Appalachia, delivers a history and celebration of the search and rescue workers who battle the elements to save lives in his book Critical Hours; Search and Rescue in the White Mountains. Stott’s book also encourages readers and visitors to the area not to take the steadfastness of the area’s rescuers for granted. Join Stott for a discussion of his book and the search and rescue system of the White Mountains.
