As changemakers, environmentalists, and women, how can wilderness experiences and adventures help us to be more creative and effective in our careers?

Join WEN at SF Environment for networking and a talk by board member Christine Sculati on living a life of adventure.

Inspired by an August 2016 journey from Mount Whitney to Yosemite Valley on the John Muir Trail, Christine will present slides from the 220-mile trail and other awe-inspiring wilderness destinations in the High Sierra and Yosemite, where she has backpacked and climbed for over 20 years.
