A World on Thin Ice – from Greenland to the North Pole to Denali
Experience the adventure of polar travel and how climate change is affecting the globe firsthand with a dynamic multi-media presentation from explorer Lonnie Dupre. Lonnie will talk about his expeditions around Greenland, to the North Pole across 600 miles of shifting sea ice and a solo winter climb of Denali aka Mount McKinley, North America’s highest peak.
Join Lonnie as he shares life on the trail with special emphasis placed on global warming, setting and achieving goals, teamwork and overcoming obstacles. Breathtaking images along with video, Arctic gear and a variety of other props complement the power point presentation.
Dupre, who lives in Grand Marais, Minnesota, has over 15,000 miles of Arctic expedition travel by dogsled, ski, on foot, and by kayak. While using non-motorized means of travel, he has lead several Arctic expeditions including treks across the Russian Far East, First west to east winter crossing of Canada’s Northwest Passage, and the only circumnavigation of Greenland’s 6500-mile coastline by kayak and dog team.
