John and his wife Mary have lived on the Manitowish River for nearly 35 years. John is the author of nine books and a contributor to seven others, all of which focus on the natural history of the Northwoods. He's worked as a naturalist in Wisconsin's Northwoods for 30 years, leading an array of trips all designed to help people further understand the remarkable diversity and beauty of nature, and our place within it. His most recent book is Our Living Ancestors: The History and Ecology of Old-Growth Forests in Wisconsin (and where to find them).



Presentations

 Birds of Northern Rivers and Lakes
Superior - main floor Sat 10:30am-11:15am 

A host of birds regale any northern paddle trip with their songs and fly-bys. The Northwoods of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan supports the highest number of nesting bird species of any region north of Mexico. In fact, it's hard to find a better place to watch birds! The Superior National Forest, for instance, provides nesting habitat for at least 155 bird species. From marsh hawks to marsh wrens, kingbirds to kingfishers, and common loons to uncommon terns, we'll look at the most notable of the birds one might see on any given paddle, get a feel for their personalities, and show you which habitats to look for them.



 Keynote Species of Northern Lakes and Rivers
Superior - main floor Fri 4:30pm-5:15pm 
Superior - main floor Sat 1:30pm-2:15pm 

We return again and again to particular places because of their beauty, and ultimately what we feel as their spirit. While each of us experiences a place differently according to our individual perceptions, there are certain species that seem to speak to all of us, and which in many ways define the spirit of a place. Come celebrate an array of northern keynote species, from plants to animals, that seem to universally evoke our strongest connections and our deepest love.
