Antarctica and South Georgia: 100 Years after Shackleton

October 6, 2016
6:30 pm

Springfield Town Library

Vermont resident and adventurer, Peter LaBelle, will chronicle his trip to the Falklands, South Georgia Island, and Antarctica with a slide show and discussion of Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated voyage aboard the Endurance in 1914. LaBelle traveled on the National Geographic Explorer for three weeks in November 2015. Crushed in pack ice, the Endurance sank 100 years to the day that LaBelle visited Elephant Island where Shackleton’s men survived for months beneath two upturned lifeboats awaiting rescue.
