Members Only: Arctic Talk at DPNC

March 8

Mystic Seaport members are invited to attend a talk and slide show by Charles Kingsley entitled “The Arctic and the Antarctic: Poles Apart” hosted by the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center as part of the programming around the Museum’s exhibition, “Murmur: Arctic Realities.”

Few areas of the globe stimulate the imagination as much as the polar regions do. Polar scenery ranges from serene beauty to awe-inspiring savagery. Polar wildlife is the result of successful adaptations to incredibly harsh ecosystems against apparently insurmountable difficulties. The human history of both the Arctic and the Antarctic is simultaneously tragic and inspiring. The two environments, similar in many ways, are very different in other ways. The Arctic and the Antarctic are quite literally poles apart.

Charles Kingsley is a noted attorney in New Haven, CT, and a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School. Besides his professional distinctions, Kingsley has served as a Director of the Connecticut Audubon Society, the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and numerous other organizations. He was awarded the C. Newton Schenck III Award for lifetime achievement in the arts by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven in 2017 for his work as a wildlife photographer.

Meets at the Arts Barn at Coogan Farm. Cost is $10.20/person, pay at the door. The talk is suitable for adults and older, interested children.

Please note: Museum members will need to present their member card at the door to receive the discount.
