The Sierra College Natural History Museum will present “Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail” on Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. on the Rocklin Campus in Sewell Hall, Room 111.
In 2006 biologist and environmental consultant Robert Francisco left his corporate office and embarked on a 5 month trek across the western United States along the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT). From drought stricken southern California deserts, through the snow covered Sierra Nevada, among blistering hot Oregon lava fields, and into the early blizzards of the northern Cascades, please join us as Robert presents a photo journey of this epic trip.
Robert Francisco is a biologist by training who has worked on a variety of projects in California and across the Western US, where he specializes in issues related to the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. He has recently been asked to serve as the General Manager for the American operations of FirstCarbon solutions, a multinational environmental/sustainability company with offices around the globe. He has traveled and hiked in a variety of countries, including many of the famous treks in New Zealand. After his PCT thru-hike (his trail journal is posted at http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=121480) he headed to the mountains again in 2009 where he spent 6 months trekking throughout the Himalayas in Nepal and India.
Cost of admission for the event is: General $5, Students and Seniors $2, Museum members free. The fee will be collected at the door. There is a $2 parking fee on campus. Permits are available at machines located in the parking lots. The Sierra College Rocklin Campus is located at 5000 Rocklin Road, Rocklin.
