I was asked to be the keynote speaker at the annual meeting for the Grass River Natural Area in Bellaire, Michigan.
This conservation area protects almost 1,500 acres along the beautiful Grass River, the waterway connecting Clam Lake to Lake Bellaire
(see the previous blog post for a look at this important preserve).
The meeting was held at Shanty Creek.
