The North Cascades are home to the longest running, most comprehensive study of glaciers on the planet—the North Cascades Glacier Climate Project. For over 15 seasons of this 34-year study, Tom Hammond has trekked to ten glaciers in the ecosystem to measure the mass and exact location of these vast plains of moving ice. The project is referenced by glaciologists the world over. Tom is a passionate observer of the mountains, an exemplar of citizen science and a photographer with a keen eye. Join him for his unique view of the Wild Nearby.
