Almanac Event with Green Fire Screening
June 20, 2015 8:00 am in Cedarville, MI
Les Cheneaux Islands Area
We welcome you to celebrate the legacy of Aldo Leopold, one of America's most influential naturalists, as we dedicate a new park in honor of his time in Les Cheneaux. The new public park is connected to the Aldo Leopold Preserve, more than 1,200 acres of protected land on Marquette Island, part of the 36-island Les Cheneaux archipelago.

Both the park and preserve are named for Leopold and his family, who spent several months a year in Les Cheneaux at their cottage on Marquette Island. There, young Leopold spent his days in the woods and on the water, where he developed an appreciation for the environment and wildlife on the island while mapping trails and listing the flora and fauna he found.

A weekend of activities, including the park dedication, nature walks, birding trips, kayak excursions, bicycle rides, a scavenger hunt, a showing of the Leopold bio-pic Green Fire, and other Leopold-related activities are being planned for Friday through Sunday.

Book your lodging now by visiting lescheneaux.org or lescheneaux.net to find rustic cottages or comfy motel rooms. We offer a variety of affordable places to stay. Much more information is coming soon!
