Penguins of Antarctica: Dr. Heather Lynch|National Geographic Live

Kleinhans Music Hall is pleased to welcome Dr. Heather Lynch as part of the National Geographic Live 2025 series, taking place in the Main Hall with reserved seating and cushy seats! Season tickets are now available!

Antarctica’s name alone conjures imagery of the harshest environment on Earth, but it is more than its monochromatic color scheme of snow and ice. Meet the many species of penguins that waddle and swim through the freezing water, along with an abundance of other life, on a journey south with quantitative ecologist Dr. Heather Lynch.
