Kennan and Karen Ward show slides of Antarctica April 22

Adventure-naturalists Kennan and Karen Ward will show slides and share stories from their recent four-month trip to the Antarctic on April 22 at 7 p.m. at the Rio Theater. The slide show, titled "Antarctica: 100 days in the Wildest Place on Earth," focuses on the extraordinary wildlife and beauty of the Weddell Sea. The massive expanses of tabular ice in this region serve as a barometer to the world for the effects of global warming.
