Next Meeting Topic:

August 1, 2016: From Beach to Beech:  The Sand Dunes of Lake Michigan
By: Jack Shouba

Presentation Description

The sand dunes of Lake Michigan are among the great natural wonders of the world and are an important recreational, scenic, and scientific resource. It was here that North American ecology got its start, and it is here that an incredible variety of plants and animals make their homes. While most visitors go to the dunes to swim, sun themselves, or play on the beach, they are missing much of what the dunes have to offer. This program demonstrates the beauty and variety found in the dunes, as we look at the process of succession and visit two National Lakeshores, several state parks, and other conservation areas around Lake Michigan
