Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
 The history of Antarctica is often told as one of explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott or Ernest Shackleton, but the history of people in the McMurdo Dry Valleys is much more complicated than these heroic tales. By using interviews, notes, maps, and photographs collected from Antarctic scientists, we can piece together a better picture of the past. Come learn about the history of Antarctic science and environmental management, and the legacy of the United States Antarctic Program.
