A new Great Lakes islands series, designed to be taken individually or two or more, that explore one important island per lake. Each class will include videos and photographs of key features of each island such as lighthouses, shipwrecks, fish and wildlife and mineral resources plus overview of each lake. Also included will be Native American, First Nation and Euro-American exploration and settlement. Travel information, handouts, books, memoirs, and other resources will be shared.
In this class, we will discuss the history of Irish settlement, the Mormons and King Strang and the sacred Native American cemetery of Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. We will also cover its archipelago management planning.
