Parishville-Hopkinton teacher to study ice, environment in Antarctica

Listen to this story
A North Country high school science teacher is preparing for a trek to Antarctica this winter to study climate change. Parishville-Hopkinton wilderness studies and biology teacher Glenn Clark is one of 17 teachers selected from across the country to work with the Arctic Research Consortium's PolarTREC program. He'll be living and working aboard an ice breaker from late January through early March of next year.

Todd Moe talks with Clark, and his mentor, Amy Leventer from Colgate University, about the trip to the Totten Glacier System on the eastern Antarctica coast -- one of the most remote, uncharted regions of the world.
