Polar explorer Will Steger to speak on climate in Spokane

Thu., April 13, 2017

Polar explorer Will Steger will be in Spokane this month to present a free program, “Eyewitness to Climate Change.”

Steger, who lives in Minnesota, has a wealth of experience and perspective in arctic environments. He led the first dogsled journey without resupply to the North Pole and the first dogsled traverse of Antarctica in a seven-month expedition covering 3,741 miles.

He completed a 1,600-mile trek across Greenland to log the longest unsupported dogsled expedition in history.

The free program is set for April 28 at 6:30 p.m. at St. George’s School, but seats should be reserved at sgs.org/rsvp. Steger will deliver the school’s second annual Dragon Talks presentation.

Steger has founded Climate Generation, a nonprofit organization to engage students, teachers and the public in climate literacy and action.
