AUBURN – On Sunday, April 19, Walkin’ Jim Stoltz, a Montana folk singer and backcountry traveler, will bring his multimedia show, “Forever Wild,” to the First Universalist Church of Auburn.

Stoltz will take his audience on a journey into our nation’s last wilderness areas, presenting a mix of stunning photography, stories and music.

Named for the 27,000 miles he has walked through the wilds of North America, Walkin’ Jim always carries his guitar and writes songs along his journey. Sung in his emotive baritone voice, his lyrics express great love and respect for the Earth. His show features images of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, his Yellowstone to Yukon walk, the Utah canyon country and the Northern Rockies.

Walkin’ Jim has toured the United States for the past 23 years. He has worked with hundreds of local organizations to gain support for clean water, roadless lands and wildlife. He has received the Environmental Protection Agency’s Outstanding Achievement Award for promoting nature.

Songs from his nine CDs are featured on National Public Radio, and he has written a new book, “Walking with the Wild Wind.”

The multimedia show will begin at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10 adults; children admitted free. Reserve tickets at 783-0461 or [email protected] The First Universalist Church of Auburn is at 169 Pleasant St.
