Union Elementary School teacher Susan Koch traveled to the Arctic Circle aboard National Geographic’s Explorer for an arctic educational expedition.

She’s now sharing what she learned in a talk on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. In “Images and Impressions from the Polar Frontier,” Koch will share visuals and stories from her adventure in the beautiful, icy landscape of the polar north.

The presentation is free. Ahead of the event, a vegetarian dinner hosted by Farmhouse Catering starts 6 p.m. Dinner tickets are $20 and advance purchase is strongly recommended as seating is limited.

This talk is the first in the 2018 Clarke Dinner and Lecture Series. The next two will be presented by employees at the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department on the topics of bats and lake sturgeon. Tickets for individual dinners are $20 each. The series of three dinners is available for $50. For tickets, contact Nancy Schulz: SaddleShoes2@gmail.com.
