Running on Ice: Stories from a Warming Arctic
Elizabeth Andre will share stories, slides and videos from her 1,200 mile dogsled trek across the Canadian Arctic's Baffin Island with renowned polar explorer Will Steger and a team of Inuit hunters, explorers and educators. Her experience included encounters with polar bears, sleds falling through the ice, snowstorms, and mushing a team of ten huskies through mountain passes and over frozen ocean. She will also recount stories shared by Inuit people living in a rapidly warming climate and offer insights to how we can respond to the challenge of global warming. Elizabeth Andre is an Ames native and graduated from Iowa State in 1998 with degrees in Spanish and International Studies. Her talk is part of the Iowa State 150th Anniversary Alumni Lecture Series.
