Majka has been guiding since 1999, and, in 2003, was the fourth woman in the United States to become certified by the American Mountain Guides Association. Majka’s latest project, The Lost Mountain, is a collaboration of scientists, conservationists, and adventurers unified in an effort to survey the biodiversity and conservation needs of Mt. Namuli in Mozambique.
Congratulations as well to Kathy Cosley (Lifetime Achievement Award) and Joey Thompson (Outstanding Guide Award).
