SOLD OUT! SOLD OUT! Sorry, but if you haven’t already got your ticket you are out of luck. We are officially sold out as of February 1, 2017.

Comox Valley photographer Boomer Jerritt presents “Off the Beaten Path: Polar Adventures on the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia” at 7pm on Thursday, February 2nd at the Courtenay and District Museum.

This is a repeat performance of his sold out lecture that took place at the Stan Hagen theatre in January.

Jerritt recently returned from two months’ work in the Antarctic region as photographer in residence with One Ocean Expeditions.

His experiences are brought to life through his images, inviting you to explore and learn about this isolated and extreme region of our planet with its foreboding landscape, mountainous icebergs and historical significance during the golden age of exploration.
