Huntington Lecture Series

Northwest Passage by Kayak

Thursday, July 18th, 7pm

Join Eileen Visser (Biology, SLU) as she describes the first single season human-powered traverse of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. This elusive sea route was long impassible due to thick year-round ice but climate change has opened the channels between high arctic islands, allowing their four person team to cross the 1800 mile Northwest Passage adventure of tackling sea ice, wind, cold, and polar bears to experience this 103 day immersion in nature July-October 2023.

All lectures begin at 7pm at the Adirondack Interpretive Center and are free thanks to the support of the Adirondack Park Institute.
