“Chain-of-Lakes History Comes Alive – A Chat with Ed & Herb”
The fascinating history of our Elk River Chain-of-Lakes will come alive as you spend this summer evening enjoying a neighborly chat with Ed McDuffie and Herb Moir. Ed and his late wife Mary Kay are co-authors of “Torch Lake: The History of Was-Wah-Go-Ning”. Herb Moir, affectionately known as “The Chainsaw Guy”, brings a lifetime of experience and stories. Whether it’s about railroad expansion, logging, river diversions and dredging, surveyors and entrepreneurs, or Tar Lake; Ed and Herb will provide the detail and anecdotes so you get to know “the rest of the story.”
A wine and cheese reception will follow the program.
This event is free and open to the public. Reservations requested. Call 231-533-8314.
Co-sponsored by Grass River Natural Area, Three Lakes Association, Torch Lake Protection Alliance, Friends of Clam Lake and Intermediate Lake Association in partnership with Antrim Conservation District and Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council.
