Presentations

 At Home in the Northwoods: Reflections on Belonging to a Place
(in-person)   Algonquin - main floor Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 
(available virtually) 
Finding a deep sense of place requires outward and inward study. Understanding an outer landscape is achieved through a lifetime of ecological exploration. Developing one's inner landscape is done through the translation of our growing ecological literacy into love. Ultimately, we're seeking to become someone whose heart is as well-educated as our mind. This talk will be an exploration of what that may mean for you, and what it has meant for the author in Wisconsin's Northwoods.



 Wisconsin's Last Undeveloped Wild Lakes
(in-person)   Superior - main floor Fri 5:30pm-6:15pm 
(in-person)   Quetico - main floor Sat 2:30pm-3:15pm 
(available virtually) 
Undeveloped wild lakes are a relative rarity on Wisconsin's landscape despite our wealth of lakes in the state. Paddling a wild lake offers a peace that's often hard to find, as well as an insight into our native plant and animal communities that live in and on our lakes. So, where are these lakes? What are their keynotes? And why should we care? Find answers to these questions and more in this presentation.
