A non-profit dedicated to the support and protection of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
“How do we connect with and create the next generation of
park visitors, supporters, and advocates?”
If the Apostle Islands are to thrive in the face of changing
times, we must keep (or make) the park relevant to both current and future
generations, and to people of all demographics, including those who have yet to
experience why this national park is significant. “Friends” is so charged, and
especially with youth. But we also do it through our volunteer program,
accessibility initiatives, publications and outreach.
The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore lost an important historic figure last week. Dick Carrier, who passed away at 85, oversaw the park’s transportation program throughout the eighties and nineties—the Lakeshore’s operational formative years.
It was a night of music, moving images and intriguing discussions when our friends at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua collaborated with the Friends of the Apostle Islands to celebrate the connection between earth day and the national lakeshore during a special edition of the Tiny Tent Show on Facebook …
It's a day devoted to protecting our environment for future generations… a day to think globally and act locally. Earth Day organizers say more than 1 billion people in 192 countries now participate in Earth Day activities each year.
Cue the stage lights, strike up the band, or at least tune in at 7 pm on Friday, April 23rd for a Tiny Tent Show celebration of Earth Day and the Islands with Bigtop Chautauqua and Friends of the Apostle Islands.
