"The Essence of the Orient" at Pinkham Notch Visitor Center on Jan. 29th

On Saturday, January 29, join us for "The Essence of the Orient – Wild Places & Unique Cultures" at Pinkham Notch Visitor Center.

Join us to learn about the cultural diversity, natural history, endless landscapes and amazing climbing adventures found in Taiwan and China from Taiwanese native Szu-ting Yi and explorer Dave Anderson.

About the presenters: Szu-ting was born and raised in Taiwan, where beautiful mountain ranges and astonishing geological features reside. Not until she came to United States for her graduate study did she have contact with various outdoor sports, including skiing, white water kayaking, mountaineering, and rock climbing. Eventually, she shifted careers from computational linguistics to outdoor education and guiding. During her pursuit of an outdoor career, she was frequently approached with curious questions about the outdoor scene in China and Taiwan. The combination of Szu-ting’s passion to share the outdoor experience and people’s expressed curiosity of outdoor China and Taiwan led to the birth of LittlePo Adventures – a guiding service which promotes mutual understanding among international explorers with different cultural backgrounds via outdoor discovery.

As the Associate Director of LittlePo Adventures, Dave Anderson uses his knowledge gained through 30 years of environmental education and guiding experience to help develop and lead trips that provide participants with once-in-a-lifetime quality experiences that are both safe and cost effective. In addition, Dave records both still and video footage of the each LittlePo Adventures trip, so participants can share their experiences with friends and family members.

Programs are free & open to the public.
