2015 has been a busy year for Great Lakes island talks & plans

A quick update is that Dave Ewert and I gave invited talks about the islands of the Great Lakes at the April 2015 NatureConserve “Biodiversity without Boundaries” conference in Traverse City. I gave the history of the Great Lakes Islands Collaborative and Dave followed with key information from Islands of Life. We’ll also be giving a talk (Dave) and moderating (me) a Michigan islands session at the upcoming October 28-30, 2015, State of Lake Michigan Conference, again in Traverse City. We’ll post links to relevant information as they come available. Hope to see some of you there! Come say hi!

Our island team is in the process of discussing and making plans for future work, and I’m actively engaged in my own book research with recent trip to Ontario (including my first look at the controversial Wolfe Island wind turbines seen in the distance in my panoramic photograph below). So stay tuned!
