“We are very fortunate to be the caretakers of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and honored to be a part of engaging so many people in celebrating its legacy and future,” said Superintendent Lynne Dominy.
The possibilities are endless- from ice creams or entrees named after places in the park; to photo or art exhibits in galleries, schools or museums; from Apostle Island movie showings or music performances; to the sale of logoed mugs, t-shirts, jams, sodas, coffees, hats…the possibilities are endless for creative ideas.”
“The 50th anniversary is about celebrating the connections between people and this special landscape,” said Friends of Apostle Islands (FAINL) President, Erica Peterson.
