3 lynn grillmair chimneys_2Lynn Mar­tel is a jour­nal­ist and speaker who explores sto­ries that focus on the moun­tain envi­ron­ment—through out­door adven­ture, his­tor­i­cal biogra­phies, social issues and cur­rent events, through nature and envi­ron­men­tal sci­ence, and through mountain-inspired art, writ­ing, film­mak­ing and personalities.

Author of 11 books, and hun­dreds of mag­a­zine and news­pa­per arti­cles in dozens of pub­li­ca­tions, Lynn’s pur­suit of a good story has led her to inves­ti­gate fas­ci­nat­ing land­scapes from accom­pa­ny­ing sci­en­tists on Cana­dian Rock­ies’ glac­i­ers to trekking in the Peru­vian Andes to Aurora view­ing in Yellowknife—in January.

Mak­ing her home in the Cana­dian Rock­ies for three decades, Lynn’s pho­tographs have been fea­tured in museum exhibits, and she also shares her in-depth knowl­edge of west­ern Canada’s moun­tain world through record­ing oral his­to­ries and radio seg­ments, and as a pro­fes­sional speaker.
