OLD LYME — 2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Connecticut sailor and explorer Nathaniel Palmer. To celebrate, the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library is hosting two programs under the title, ‘Adventures in Antarctica,’ via Zoom.

The first program was held July 15, when local resident Brian Greenho shared his adventures hiking and skiing the mountains of Antarctica along with remarkable photos of the scenery and wildlife taken during his travels.

The second program takes place this evening, Tuesday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m. when local photographer Caryn Davis will share her stunning images of Antarctica. Davis fulfilled a lifetime dream when she traveled to ‘The White Continent’ in January of this year and will offer insights on climate change, eco-tourism impact, and the allure of Antarctica. She will also discuss the history and environment of the continent and explore Connecticut’s connection to it.
