Learn about the Arctic and Antarctica from someone who has been to both. Peggy Doane traveled to Churchill, Manitoba in November 2016 to see the polar bears ready themselves to cross the frozen Hudson Bay. She then traveled to Antarctica the following month on a scientific expedition. Onboard ship, Peggy learned from the experts about the climate and marine life in Antarctica as well as its former whaling and sealing industries. She will tell the story of these trips and show the clothing needed to go on the zodiac cruises.


Instructor Peggy Doane earned her BS in secondary education from Northwest Missouri State University. She loves travel, including missions, cruises, walking, motor coach and scientific expeditions. Her goal is to make every trip a learning experience.
