Celebrate the Great Outdoors with Author & Photographer Tim Palmer
Nature enthusiasts are invited to an evening with Tim Palmer, award-winning author of 28 books about the environment, outdoors and adventure travel. A Port Orford resident, Palmer travels and presents to audiences throughout the United States.
Palmer’s newest publication, “America’s Great Mountain Trails: 100 Highcountry Hikes of a Lifetime” (Rizzoli, 2019), is a showcase of beauty and adventure found in mountains across the country. On March 11, Palmer will share a slide show with images from the book and take audiences on a visual mountain tour– including hikes on the Southern Oregon Coast. The free book talk is presented by the Cape Arago Audubon Society and the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society at the Bandon Community Center.
Stunning photography, along with Palmer’s storytelling, make an engaging presentation for audiences.
“Tim Palmer is a gifted author,” said Harv Schubothe of the Cape Arago Audubon Society. “I think it’ll be quite an entertaining evening for people.”
