Clear Lake Education Center and Escanaba’s Canterbury Bookstore invite you to a “Sense of Place” program series for 2019. Beginning in January, the monthly series will focus on exploring Delta County’s rich natural and cultural heritage, our watersheds, weather, businesses, history, geography and more in an effort to enrich our understand of and connection to the place we live. It will help us understand “what makes this place tick.”
The monthly series will feature a mid-week one-hour study session at the bookstore with subject materials provided that prepares participants for the following Saturday field trip to sites around the county. Saturday tours will be an in-depth experience at the venue for that month.
Mark your calendar! You are invited to an informational and registration meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 11 at 7 pm at Canterbury Bookstore. A short Sense of Place video will be shown. Refreshments will be provided.
A registration/materials fee of $45 will be charged each participant for the first six programs, Jan-June. Single session walk-ins are also encouraged at $10 per session. Registration for the second half of the 2019 series will occur in June.
Some of the proposed venues may include water quality studies via remotely operated aquatic vehicles aboard the Inland Seas Education Assn. schooner Utopia, the Delta Historical Society Museum and lighthouse, Upper Hand Brewery, Besse veneer mill, geology and butterflies on Peninsula Point, nature journaling on the Days River Trail, Hannaville tribal history, Northern Sun Winery tour to learn the ins and outs of excellent wine making, birding at Portage Point, and an introduction to the MSU Extension’s Field Research Station, among others. Participants will vote on the various venues you’d like to visit through the year as the program is developed.
