A Naturalist’s Journey to Antarctica

February 12 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

Presented by Lou Bruno

Join Lou Bruno on an incredible epic journey aboard the National Geographic Explorer to the Antarctic, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. This is the world of snow-capped peaks, icebergs, pristine endless seas, and an unbelievable diversity of marine mammals and pelagic birds. He will offer a naturalist’s perspective on the life histories of these creatures and the fascinating adaptations that make them able to thrive and deal with the changing conditions affecting their existence.  He will also trace the heroic 1915 journey of Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 men from Antarctica across hundreds of miles of open ocean to the Stromness Whaling Station at South Georgia.

Lou Bruno is a retired educator and professional naturalist who resides in East Glacier Park, Montana.  He grew up in Brooklyn and Queens, New York. His passion for all things natural led him to pursue a biology degree at the University of Montana, which he received in 1971. He taught in Browning, Montana, for 20 years until he retired in 1995. In addition to teaching in Browning, Lou spent many years guiding in Glacier, Yellowstone, Alaska and Mexico. He is currently the Vice President of Glacier-Two Medicine Alliance and was one of the founders of that group.  

We will continue our hybrid meetings this month and continue for the remainder of the year. For those coming to the meeting on February 12th, we’ll meet in Room 26 of the Gateway Mall (United Way building) at 7pm. This room is on the east side of the building along Glenwood Drive in Kalispell. Look for our banner hanging outside.
