Nature experience in the Sierras subject of Jan. 26 talk

—Have you ever wanted to strap your belongings on your back and hike the Sierras? Then you won’t want to miss this presentation by local backpacker David Athey on Thurs., Jan. 26, 7-8 p.m. in the Library Conference Room.

David has led several week-long group backpacking adventures in the back country of the Sierras and is accomplished in Sierra trip planning. He has also hiked the Central Coast, including trips in the Los Padres National Forest. Along with gorgeous pictorial descriptions of his own adventures, he will offer tips for preparing your own trip, types of equipment to bring, and how to make the most of your hiking time. According to Adult Services Librarian Karen Christiansen, “I have admired David Athey’s knowledge of planning and leading outdoor experiences for years. Although I am not a hiker myself, I can’t wait to see his beautiful photography of the Sierra Back Country.”

Sign up for this armchair adventure beginning Jan. 9, by calling (805) 237-3870. For more information, contact Karen Christiansen, 237-3870.
