Celebrate Sustainable Living Practices!

This year’s Friday night kick-off of the Sustainable Living Fair focused on the Niagara Escarpment, bringing the stories, recommendations, and insights from the recent 2015 Sources of Knowledge Forum, titled “The Great Arc: Life on the (L)Edge”. It took place in Tobermory, Ontario on May 8-10, 2015, the forum’s goal is to build bridges to other communities which, like the Bruce Peninsula, lie on the rim of the Michigan Basin.
Featured speakers for the evening:
Eric W. Fowle-Executive Director, East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission / Founding Co-Chair, Niagara Escarpment Resource Network
Bob Bultman-Geologist, Caver, and Nature Restorationist
Dr. Roger Kuhns-Geologist/Ecologist
Dr. Joanne Kluessendorf-Director, Weis Earth Science Museum
Paul Regnier – Owner & lead Naturalist for Door County Nature and Travel LLC and Door County Tours LLC
The Niagara Escarpment, often referred to as the “Great Arc,” is a prominent geologic feature that extends visibly from the western New York State, through southern Ontario, Manitoulin Island and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, before descending southward through the Door Peninsula of Wisconsin and our Eastern Highlands just past the Horicon Marsh basin.
Saturday will be filled with a celebration of local exhibitors and vendors sharing the life of sustainable practices! There will be local food, children’s activities and so much more!
