‘Rivers in demand’

-A A +A

Kyle Dickman will discuss three years of exploratory kyaking through biodiversity hot spots

By Special to the Monitor

Join the Los Alamos Mountaineers (LAM) at their regular monthly meeting to hear professional kayaker and journalist Kyle Dickman describe his adventures as part of the “Rivers in Demand” project. This project has taken him from the Congo River in Central Africa to the Rio Roosevelt in Brazil.
The “Rivers in Demand” project, now it its third year, is designed to use whitewater kayaking and media to raise awareness to threats to biodiversity hotspots.
Dickman’s presentation will take a broad stroke on “Rivers in Demand,” explaining its purpose, its history and a few of his favorite adventures.
The presentation will include descriptions of using a kayak to measure the Congo as the deepest river in the world (850 feet deep), dodging crocodiles in the mountains of Papua New Guinea and kayaking the last descent of a section of China’s Yangtze River.
Dickman is a writer, photographer and producer for the Epicocity Project. Outside Magazine and National Geographic Adventure have published his work and he’s a regular contributor at Canoe & Kayak. Many of the “River in Demand” projects were collaborations with the National Geographic Society.
