LEIF & JIM WHITTAKER
Join us on January 24 as we kickoff our BeWild Speaker Series with Leif Whittaker and his father Jim. We'll be featuring stories from Leif's latest book My Old Man and the Mountain.
Jim stepped into history on May 1, 1963 when he became the first American to summit Mt. Everest. Nearly five decades later, his son Leif followed in his footsteps to the top of the world - twice. Both father and son are accomplished authors, and compelling, inspirational speakers, exploring themes of adventure, risk, perseverance, teamwork, friendship and the beauty of the natural world.

The Mountaineers are proud to present the BeWild Speaker Series where we're putting passion and adventure on the stage. Come to any one of these talks - or all three - and we guarantee you'll leave inspired to seek adventure, connect with nature and work to protect wild places.
