8th Northeast Alpine Stewardship Gathering

On November 1-3, 2013, IAT/IATNL Chairperson Paul Wylezol attended the 8th Northeast Alpine Stewardship Gathering at the Sargent Center in Hancock, New Hampshire. There he learned of the latest developments in northeast North America alpine ecology and conservation and gave a presentation on the International Appalachian Trail and Global Geoparks.

The event was hosted by the MERE Project of the Environmental Studies Department, Antioch University New England, with the support of the Waterman Fund. It began with dinner and welcome by university president Stephen Jones and a keynote address by Beyond Ktaadn's Mike Jones and Liz Willey, authors of the new and highly-regarded Eastern Alpine Guide, a natural history and conservation vision for the eastern mountain ranges from New York state to Labrador.
