Exploring Lake Michigan
In 2009, Loreen Niewenhuis walked completely around Lake Michigan, a 1,000-mile walk around the world's fifth-largest lake. In her presentation, Niewenhuis will take you along the shores of the lake she loves with photos and video from her journey. She will illuminate the geology, natural history and biology of the lake and also what threatens this massive ecosystem: invasive species, pollution and destruction of wetlands. An MS in biological sciences, she raises important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting fragile ecosystems on which we all depend.
