Hiking & Backpacking the Channel Islands
Thursday, June 9 at 5:30 PM | Virtual Event (register for Zoom via library's calendar)
Join local author James Wapotich as he shares images and stories from hiking, backpacking, and camping on the four islands off our coast. James has hiked many of the trails on the islands and has visited all five islands within Channel Islands National Park.

This program is part of our 2022 Book to Action series. Programming is inspired by Island Visions, edited by Jacob Seigel Brielle and illustrated by Isaac Seigel-Boettner, which features essays and infographics written by scientists, environmentalists, rangers, fisherman, and local outdoor enthusiasts and explores what is special about the Channel Islands and why it’s important to conserve the environment and cultural significance of this unique place.

This project was supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
