ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Alex Lee

Alex Lee developed a passion for the outdoors while exploring the forests of New England as a child. A graduate of Dartmouth College with a double major in Earth science and philosophy, Alex spent much of his time in the Dartmouth Glaciology Lab studying the change in North American alpine glaciers. In 2008, he began studying the glaciology of Denali National Park, and has spent summers as a resident in the area since 2010. Alex holds an M.S. in environmental studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is currently working on his Ph.D., which focuses on the ethics of conservation ecology and policy. In addition to this work, Alex is part of a team at Boulder that recently received a grant to produce a 12-episode short film series on the science and policy of climate change in the American West. When not studying the environment, Alex enjoys spending his free time outside through hiking, fishing, climbing, skiing and spending time with his dog Ziggy.
