Join the Spokane Mountaineers January 21st for a special presentation by Arlene Blum, who is a Ph.D biophysical chemist, author, and world-class mountaineer. She has led successful expeditions to some of the world's most challenging mountains, as well as conducting scientific research to protect human health and the global environment. Blum will share with us her favorite images and dramatic stories from her memoir, Breaking Trail: A Climbing Life, illustrating her climbs of remote and beautiful high peaks as well as her scientific research and policy work to reduce the use of harmful chemicals for a healthier world. Her work is contributing to reducing the use of harmful PFAS chemicals which were found in wells in Airway Heights near Spokane at levels up to eighty times greater than the current EPA’s Health Advisory Level.
