“Poles Apart” — with a dash of climate change!

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Beginning at 7 p.m.

SMVE Clubhouse

*** Reservations Required ***

Bill Page is a retired New York State science teacher with experience teaching grades 7 through 12 and courses at C.W. Post College of Long Island University. His interest in wildlife and photography began during the 1940’s when he was a farm boy in Pennsylvania, and continues today.

Bill and his wife Joan have traveled to the sub-Antarctic islands and the Antarctic Peninsula in 1996 and again in 2000. In 2003 they traveled to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean which extends to within 10 degrees of the geographical North Pole.

During these travels they became aware of and interested in the effects of climate change in the polar regions. Bill has studied the evolution of the earth’s surface and the earth’s climates throughout the past 360 million years.

On October 17, beginning at 7 PM in the Recreation Center at the North pool, he will put on a digital presentation sharing some of what he has learned and show his photos taken during these travels to demonstrate the similarities and differences between the wildlife in the two polar regions.
