2012 promises new island initiatives

South Bass Island (Lake Erie)

2012 is shaping into a good year for Great Lakes island activities:

  • The island team is in initial discussions to develop a formal work plan to foster implement of island conservation throughout the Great Lakes ecoregion.  We’ll be seeking support for those efforts.
  • Within the next few weeks I will be on Ann Arbor cable television talking with show host Barbara Lucas about Beaver Island and the big picture of Great Lakes islands conservation.  I’ll post links here when I know when it will air.
  • I’m working with a publisher on an island book proposal.  The book will be the cumulation of 25 years of my passionate interest and  involvement with the islands.

I’ll also further develop this blog so as to share these initiatives and involve more people in learning about and better caring for the islands.
