Sustaining Lake Superior – Reading Group read for April

The Reading Group will meet on Thurs, April 11, at 7pm in the Dandelion Cottage Room at Peter White Public Library in Marquette to discuss Sustaining Lake Superior, a book by MTU professor Nancy Langston.

We tend to think of Lake Superior as clear, clean, even pristine. But Langston notes that pollutants and toxins are arriving from a variety of sources. She is a professor at MTU and spoke at the Northern Climate Network at NMU last spring.

“A cautionary story about the true cost of unenlightened commodification of Lake Superior. Like the Anishinaabe whose stewardship Nancy Langston chronicles, she invokes Seventh Generation thinking: make wise decisions today based on the best interests of future generations.” -Patty Loew, Bad River Anishinaabe

Everyone is invited to join the conversation.  It would help to have at least started to read the book!  For more information, call Charlie (226-3314) or email

Then here’s an event of interest – Forests for Fish Forum, Tues, April 16, 5-9pm, River Rock Lanes and Banquet Center, Ishpeming.  Three presentations: Dynamic linkages between forest and lake; Life in the nearshore zone; Fishes in the Abyss- the offshore ecosystem.  FMI – call Gary Willis, (906) 353-6651
