Wilderness adventurers speak on Lake Superior Water Trail and Heritage Coast
Gaylord Herald Times, February 6, 2015
PETOSKEY — From their earliest years together, Gary and Joanie McGuffin have spent their lives in the wilderness. They have led canoeing and kayaking expeditions across Northern Canada, the United States and elsewhere around the world. Along the way, they have married, raised a daughter and turned their wanderlust into a full-time career as award-winning writers-photographers and conservationists.
Thanks to many best-selling books and countless exhibitions, millions of people have looked through their eyes to see the beauty and mysteries of the natural world.
The McGuffins’ pictures will take visitors to new places of stunning beauty, and may well inspire several adjoining wilderness adventures.
During this one-hour presentation, attendees will explore the Lake Superior Water Trail and learn more about the McGuffins’ current conservation efforts to protect and restore the Lake Superior Watershed. The presentation will take place at 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, in the Library Conference Room at North Central Michigan College, 1515 Howard St. A book signing will immediately follow and their award-winning books will be available for purchase. There is no charge to attend, however donations to the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council are appreciated.
The Ice Breaker Speaker series is organized by Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council and this feature is presented in partnership with Lake Superior Watershed Conservancy and North Central Michigan College.
