Judy Bentley @WRI: Hiking Washington's History--Brand New Edition
03/24/2022 - 7:00pm
Judy Bentley shares slides and stories at WRI, drawing from 44 historic hikes and more described with co-author Craig Romano in their brand-new second edition of Hiking Washington's History. For thousands of years, people have moved across Washington's spectacular terrain, establishing footpaths to reach summer hunting and gathering grounds, then roads to mineral discoveries high in the mountains; fishing sites and trade emporiums on the rivers, forests of old-growth trees to harvest and log, and homesteads and towns on prairies. Bentley will describe some of these ancient and more recent paths now preserved, restored, and maintained for hiking.
Judy Bentley taught Pacific Northwest history for more than twenty years. She is an avid hiker and author of 15 young adult books as well as two guides to hiking and walking Washington history.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a community social with beer and wine available for purchase. Judy's presentation will start at 7:00pm. This is a FREE event with a donation basket at door.
