Last month I had the pleasure of speaking at the Hiawatha Sportsman's Club
in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The club has existed for 90 years and encompasses over 36,000 acres 
including 6 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline.

Manitou Lodge Museum

I spoke in the Manitou Lodge Museum which is perched on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan.

The museum chronicles the foundation of the club by Dr. William McNamara and the natural history of this land.

The land was stripped of trees in the early 1900s

A wonderful audience awaits my presentation on the islands of our Great Lakes
