You may have met Moutlon on one of the OOPS paddles or perhaps taken one of his classes. Moulton is the Director of The Center for Cold Water Safety. He is an expert on heat and cold stress, and an internationally recognized authority on cold water safety. He served as the Executive Director of the Center for Environmental Physiology in Washington, DC for ten years, where he developed the first national public health campaigns to safeguard vulnerable populations during extremes of hot and cold weather.
Before moving to Washington, DC, he was Director of Carolina Wilderness Institute, a non-profit skills-based wilderness school he founded in North Carolina, where he developed and taught dozens of semester-length courses, classes, and workshops on a wide range of wilderness travel and outdoor safety subjects.
With the cold water season almost upon us, don't miss his presentation about cold water safety. Moulton has been a key figure in promoting cold water safety for over thirty years, and his work on heat and cold stress prevention has been nationally featured in hundreds of newspaper articles, radio programs, and television shows, including The Washington Post, All Things Considered, and Oprah.
