Get Outside Expo Presenter: Marty Koch

One of the most familiar names at the 2019 Get Outside Expo is also one of our most-traveled. Marty Koch is a retired St. Louis park ranger and the former Program Director for Alpine Shop. He has traveled extensively to the wild areas of America, photographing nature’s beauty. He is a photographer, instructor and freelance writer who has authored two books of his photography and is currently working on a third.

Marty is a nationally-recognized speaker from trade shows across the country, where he’s known for his many presentations on “The Amazing Earth.” He’ll be showing us two of those programs this weekend.

On Saturday, Marty will be the first presenter of the day at 10 am with The Amazing Earth: Zion National Park. Zion National Park is an amazing place full of canyons, rushing rivers, seasonal waterfalls, and astounding views. This presentation will cover the most popular sites as well as a couple of hidden gems. Learn about the parks geology, natural history, accommodations and much more.

On Sunday, Marty will lead off the the final day of the EXPO with The Amazing Earth: Wonders of Canyonlands National Park. The largest of Utah’s five national parks is Cayonlands National Park near Moab, UT. As the name suggests, this park is all about the canyons, geologic formations, and big rivers. This program will explore the three sections of the park: Island in the Sky, The Needles, and The Maze. Topics will cover visiting the park, lodging, and camping facilities, other attractions in the area.
