Explorer to give talk on climate change

Posted: Monday, April 12, 2010

JUNEAU - Arctic and Antarctic explorer Will Steger will be in Juneau today to talk about the impacts of climate change in Alaska.

Steger was the first to make a dogsled journey to the North Pole without re-supply, completed the 1,600 mile south-north traverse of Greenland, and was the first to mush across the Arctic Ocean from Russia to Canada.

He will discuss the effects of climate change to indigenous cultures, wildlife habitat and Arctic topography at noon in Centennial Hall's Hickel Room.
