Public Program: Antactica & Chile, Jeff Stann, speaker
Location: Curtis Memorial Library, Morrell Room, Brunswick.
Jeff Stann will recount a trip he made to Western Antarctica in 2019. Including a stopover in southern Chile, he saw five penguin species among a total list of approximately 120 birds. He has birded from Argentina to Alaska over the years. Visiting Antarctica was of particular interest to Jeff, since he had written about the history of scientific exploration in the Pacific and Southern oceans during a prior life at the Smithsonian. Jeff is a retired landscape designer, who now busies himself removing invasive plants, woodworking, and hiking; his most recent walk was a redo of the 100-Mile Wilderness in Maine last October.
