Reflecting on Roald Amundsen -  with underwater archeologist Rob Rondeau

Thursday, March 7 at 7:30pm

The greatest polar explorer of all time, Norway’s Roald Amundsen was the first to reach the South Pole by dog team, sail the Northwest Passage and fly over the North Pole.  As a boy, Canadian marine archaeologist Rob Rondeau was inspired by Amundsen’s story.  It encouraged him to embark on his own life-long journey of exploration.  A Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, Rondeau is also a best-selling author and academic.  Join Rondeau for a fascinating evening where he reflects on Amundsen’s life and accomplishments and how they’ve impacted him as well as so many others.
