Sir Ernest Shackleton and the Endurance

WALNUT CREEK, CALIF./April 29, 2017— Tickets available now to enjoy a catered brunch among the owls, hawks and opossums at Lindsay Wildlife Experience, followed by an exclusive presentation: Antarctic Adventures with Capt. Scott Shackleton on May 15.

Scott Shackleton is a cousin of Sir Ernest Shackleton, who is best known for his horrific journey leading the stranded crew of his ship, the Endurance, to safety after a failed attempt to cross Antarctica in 1914. The journey has become the stuff of legend. Shackleton led his men in lifeboats across ice-clogged waters to South Georgia Island, where they then scaled the island’s snow-capped mountains to reach safety.

Captain Scott Shackleton, an assistant dean at UC Berkeley, will discuss the harrowing journey and how it inspired him to go on “Operation Deep Freeze,” his 2010 journey to the South Pole. Come see this amazing presentation and enjoy a delicious brunch! All money raised goes to the Lindsay Wildlife Alliance, which funds programs at Lindsay Wildlife.

When: May 15, 9:30 a.m. to noon

Where: 1931 First Ave., Walnut Creek, CA 94597
