Event Details

Winter in Glencoe? Quite balmy, if you look at some of the alternatives! Get some perspective on snow and ice at this fun family program. John Huston, a professional polar explorer and veteran of the first American unsupported expedition to the North Pole, will provide a light-hearted tour of his experiences in the high latitudes at both ends of the earth. He'll tell stories of sled dogs, polar bears, musk oxen, reindeer hair sleeping bags, the stealin' wolf, and the Arctic Ocean obstacle course--and he'll share his polar-tested wisdom on overcoming challenges in general. Based in Evanston, Mr. Huston also works as a safety and logistics consultant, wilderness guide, motivational speaker, and supervisor of a student outdoors program at Northwestern University. This program is for adults and older children.
