Chill out in the ultra cool Arctic Lounge, order a frosty cocktail at the Ice Bar, heat things up on the dance floor to the live music of Whammy Fish, or enjoy sumptuous appetizers and desserts. Party goers can also meet Jonathan Waterman, creator of our newest special exhibit, “Journey through the Arctic Refuge,” a photographic expedition through Alaska’s 19.2-million-acre Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Cocktail attire suggested; valet parking available; must be 21 to attend.

Fee: $50 Friends (Free for Brimley Society members); $60 General Public. Tickets are available online at https://tickets.naturalsciences.org/public/show.asp through Monday, November 9.

Paddling through the Beaufort Sea. Pack ice in the region has diminished 20 percent since the 1970s, jeopardizing polar bears that depend upon the ice as hunting platforms for seals, and allowing the ocean to absorb—rather than reflect—the sun’s heat as part of a series of warming cycles drastically altering the Arctic.
