TMI's own Alton Byers featured in Discovery

Besides the Mountain Institute's Appalachian program based out of Circleville, WV, TMI also does service in the Andes and the Himalayas. For those curious about the projects going on in other parts of the world, here's a link to an article on TMI's own Alton Byers, whose work in the Himalayas on the effects of climate change and tourism has been making a lot of press lately: Everest: Tourism and Climate Change Provide New Challenges.

Also check out the article "How to Prevent Glacial Lakes from Flooding Mountain Communities" in the June 2013 edition of Discover magazine and Alton Byer's contribution to the book, "The Call of Everest", published by National Geographic.
