Oregon Glaciers Institute
Wednesday September 15, 6:30 - 7:30pm @ The Outdoor Store
Dr. Anders Carlson fell in love with glaciers as an undergraduate student while conducting research at Matanuska Glacier in Alaska. After receiving his B.A. in Geology and German from Augustana College, IL, he earned a M.S. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Ph.D. at Oregon State University in glacial geology. Following a postdoc at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, MA, he was a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then Oregon State University before co-founding the Oregon Glaciers Institute. Anders has studied glacier-climate change for 20+ years in the United States, Canada, Greenland, Svalbard, Scandinavia, Patagonia and Antarctica, with his current focus on the glaciers of the Pacific Northwest.

MOUNTAIN BIKE FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS CLINIC
Welcome to the World of Mountain Biking!
Did you just get your first mountain bike and want to learn some new skills? Go out with some friends and now you’re hooked on the sport? Just love the idea of exploring more of your local trails? Our mountain bike fundamentals skills clinic is perfect for you!
In this course, we’ll take a skills-based approach to mountain biking so you can hit the trails with confidence this season! We’ll focus on position & balance, shifting & braking, terrain awareness, and direction control. You’ll have a chance to apply these skills on trail as we tackle technical terrain, proper cornering, maneuvering obstacles, and learning how to build speed with comfort.
