Eric and Sarah McNair-Landry—an adventurous brother-sister team from Baffin Island—grew up with the Arctic Ocean and sled dogs in their backyard. Both have trekked across the polar regions since they were teens. Last year, on a Nat Geo Young Explorers grant, the two kite-skied over two thousand miles through Canada’s arctic archipelago, fending off polar bears and coping with unfavorable winds and melting ice along the way. They will be speaking about their experiences at the National Geographic Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
