Join Polar Explorer and Mountaineer Lonnie Dupre for a one hour presentation with images and video followed by a Q&A. Lonnie was born in 1961 and raised on a Minnesota country farm. He is descended on his mother's side from Jacques Cartier, the French explorer and founder of Quebec. Lonnie currently lives in Grand Marais, Minnesota enjoying woodworking and back country skiing in the Quetico/Boundary Waters Wilderness of the Minnesota/Canadian border area. Lonnie achieved the first circumnavigation of Greenland, a 6,500 mile, all non-motorized journey by kayak and dog team. In 2015 Dupre accomplished the first solo winter ascent of Alaska's Mount Denali (20,340ft.) in January. This presentation will meet on the front patio
