The polar regions are wondrous, exciting, dangerous and mysterious places that deserve our attention. In an interactive class setting, learn about the geopolitical issues; geology, ice and morphology and the impact of climate change; specialized plants and animals; biographies of the important explorers; myths, stories and histories of the indigenous people; and contemporary art and music by some of our own Northwest musicians and artists.
