Event Details

Are you interested in taking your students to the tundra to observe polar bears?  Is that slightly out of your field trip budget?  Well, no worries.  We have once again joined forces with our friends at Polar Bears International (PBI) to bring four incredible virtual field trips live to your desktop.

Through PBI’s Tundra Connections® you’re invited to meet and talk with some of the world’s foremost authorities on polar bears and climate change during our free Tundra Connections® broadcasts. Big names. With big stories. And big bears just outside.
