In his kick-off show “Sheltering in Place”, Dave Nettle will blend challenge and adventure into classic stories and images about a couple of climbing trips to Alaska on Moose’s Tooth and Mount Huntington and an expedition into the Kichatna Spires. Nettle will depict how on these climbs he and his partners found themselves unintentionally experiencing what it means to “shelter in place” while literally “stuck in place” tent bound deep in a remote mountain range for over 2 weeks of intense, continual snow storms. In traditional fashion, Nettle will bring lighthearted humor and fun to the soul-crushing effect of what so many days of uncertainty look like while trapped in the middle of nowhere with limited supplies and at the complete mercy of the weather. Nettle will round out his show with a couple of recent COVID influenced rock climbing adventures that allowed him to pursue his passion closer to home while following required and common-sense pandemic restrictions.
The 2020-2021 Virtual Winter Speaker Series is livestreaming to you at home. All shows are free of charge and all ages are welcome. The much loved and anticipated in-person raffle will take place this year in a virtual capacity with tickets available for purchase at online registration and winners announced in real-time during the show.
Proceeds from Dave Nettle’s show will benefit the Truckee Donner Land Trust. The Donor Party, the anonymous philanthropic arm of the Winter Speaker Series, will supplement the funds raised via the raffle.
Over the years, Truckee Donner Land Trust has protected more than 35,000 acres, ensuring continued recreational access and protecting lands for future generations. They are determined to protect another 24,500 acres in the coming years with a value of more than $40 million. Today, the mountains, canyons, meadows, lakes and rivers of the Truckee Donner region continue to face threats from unwise growth and development spilling over onto treasured natural areas.
