This past week Jon Bowermaster transported over 700 students to Antarctica. Their mode of travel? His new film Terra Antarctica. Bowermaster, a National Geographic sponsored athlete, presented a full screening of his brand new, high-def film chronicling his expedition along the Antarctic Peninsula which premiered this spring. Students from Winston-Salem, NC (Wake Forest University and Forsyth Country Day School ) along with students from Raleigh, NC (Broughton High School) attended the presentations. Students expressed keen interest as they discussed the impact of warming waters and other effects of human-caused climate change. This was Bowermaster's second trip to North Carolina in 2009 under the sponsorship of Mountain Hardwear and Great Outdoor Provision Co. More information at www.greatoutdoorprovision.com
