1,000 Mile Walk Around Lake Michigan

Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 1:00pm

This dynamic presentation showcases a 1,000-mile walk completely around the world’s fifth-largest lake. Author Loreen Niewenhuis takes you along the shores of Lake Michigan with photos and video from her journey, illuminating the geology, natural history and biology of the lake. She’ll also discuss threats to this massive ecosystem: invasive species, pollution, and destruction of wetlands. Her book, A 1,000 Mile Great Lakes Island Adventure, explores both the geology of the lake and the measure of a person. Most of the walk was done solo, an adventure in discovery of
self and place. Ms. Niewenhuis holds a M.S. degree in the biological sciences, and raises important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting fragile ecosystems. Generously sponsored by Heartland of Bloomfield Hills
