Realm of the Polar Bear: The Norwegian Arctic
Amy S. Dane, MA, word traveler and docent, Springfield Museums
Take a virtual cruise around the island of Spitzbergen – or as much can be navigated given ice conditions. Walk through the landscape, encounter the wildlife and be on the lookout for the colorful flora that populates the tundra. Visit some of the few and far-between settlements whose inhabitants brave this cold and often bleak part of the world and learn about the strong-willed pioneers who jockeyed for first place and even paid with their lives to reach their destination.
$2 members; $4 nonmembers
Davis Auditorium, Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts.
