CILU Hosts Photographic Journey to Antarctica

Isolated by its remote location, freezing temperatures and the stormy Southern Ocean, Antarctica is a land of extremes. The continent is detached from our everyday lives, yet its climate is intricately tied to Earth’s systems. Spend the evening with Citizens for Informed Land Use (CILU) and local physicists and Bell Labs alumni Janet and Larry Jackel, as they take you on a photographic journey into their 2019 National Geographic voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula, a wildlife refuge and important breeding ground for species that spend most of their lives at sea. Discover remnants from the heroic era of Antarctic exploration, hear stories from the legendary NSF research station and experience the dazzling frozen landscapes, pristine bays, and charming wildlife that have long captured the imaginations of intrepid adventurers and photographers. 

The event will be held Monday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 pm at the Holmdel Community Center, 6 Crawfords Corner Rd. This presentation is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended, but not required. Please contact Karen at to sign up. The presentation will be recorded and shared on CILU’s YouTube channel (search CILU Holmdel).
