We’ve set up our Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore booth on the main show floor and filled it with collectible fine art prints, Friends merchandise and more. We’ve got lots of information about the park we love and are ready to answer your questions.
We want to meet you! Stop by tonight, Saturday or Sunday at the Alliant Energy Center, or join virtually online.
Here’s a description of Jeff’s presentation, “With New Eyes: Find A Sense of Place in the Apostle Islands” from the show program:
“The real journey of discovery,” wrote Marcel Proust “consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” For more than 20 years, Jeff Rennicke traveled the globe as a writer and photographer seeking stories in new landscapes, seeking the wondrous in exotic places. But it took coming home to the Apostle Islands to show him real beauty, real wonder, and a lasting sense of place.
In this presentation, Rennicke tells of the joys and frustrations of coming to find the beauty in his own backyard – kayaking, hiking, seeking the northern lights on the frozen back of Lake Superior, and listening to the landscape of the Apostles. Filled with philosophy, inspiration, and real hands-on techniques, this presentation will open your eyes again to your own backyard, wherever you live, and having you seeing the world “with new eyes.”
