Dylan Jones and Nikki Forrester of Highland Outdoors, to present at Adventure Sports Colloquium
Media professionals Dylan Jones and Nikki Forrester, of Highland Outdoors magazine, will co-present as part of the Garrett College Adventure Sports colloquium series on Tuesday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m. Their presentation will take place in Room 1013 in the Center for Adventure and Outdoor Studies (CAOS) building on the McHenry campus.
Jones and Forrester co-publish Highland Outdoors, a quarterly print and digital magazine based in Davis, W.Va. The publication covers West Virginia's outstanding recreation opportunities, spectacular landscapes, and inspiring individuals. Highland Outdoors proudly sponsors outdoor adventure events in West Virginia including the Mountain State Fat Bike Champs, Canaan Valley Half Marathon, and Cheat Fest.
Prior to his foray into the world of publishing, Jones was (and remains) a freelance writer and photographer. He received a master’s in public administration in 2014 and a bachelor's degree in journalism in 2010, both from West Virginia University.
Forrester is also a freelance science writer and editor. She received a bachelor’s degree in anthropology in 2011 and is currently pursuing a PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology. The duo will be discussing and sharing how outdoor adventure shaped their career paths and where they plan on going in the future with Highland Outdoors.
Although the colloquium series are part of a course for students enrolled in the Adventure Sports program, the general public is encouraged and invited to attend. For more information on upcoming colloquium presentations, contact the Garrett College Adventure Sports office at 301-387-3330.
