AMRDI Celebrates International Mountain Day with Explorer Eric Larsen

Dec 11, 2016

The 11th of December has been declared “International Mountain Day” by the United Nations. As a Colorado-based nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting prosperity in the Arctic and mountain regions of the world, AMRDI will be hosting a celebration of high places, featuring two of the things that Denver’s mountain lovers hold most dear: craft ales and tales of adventure.

Eric Larsen, a Boulder-based explorer and educator, is the first person to have set foot on the South Pole, the North Pole, and the summit of Mount Everest all within the same year. He will be presenting highlights of some of his adventures – as well as sharing the successes of his Save the Poles expedition – at the Call to Arms Brewery taproom, 4526 Tennyson Street in Denver. Eric’s talk will be followed by a silent auction to benefit AMRDI.

But the International Mountain Day celebration isn’t all about Eric and AMRDI. It’s also a chance for local adventurers to meet and share stories while enjoying good food and drink. The event’s $25 ticket (available at the door) includes two tacos from Mas Kaos, as well as one pint of Porter Borealis, brewed especially for the occasion.
