Quest for  Lichens
Quest for Lichens

Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center | Schroeder Minnesota

This region of the world is home to an amazing assortment of lichens- more than many other areas. You know -it’s the old story of Alice Algae and Freddie Fungus taking a lichen to each other! Current research indicates that there is a whole lot more going on there than meets the eye- a species of lichen may be much more like a community than a single species. A study of the lichens at Sugarloaf reveals that there are 134 species at Sugarloaf and far more than half of them are found out on the point at Sugarloaf. Join us for an exploration to see how many different species we can find and explore the amazing world of lichens. $5 per person; $10 per family.

Writer's Salon with Margot Gait
Writer's Salon with Margot Gait

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

Poet and prose writer Margot Fortunato Galt will read from her new chapbook, “The Heart Beat of Wings” (a 2017 Red Bird Chapbook winner), drenched in memories of summer, moments of winter awe, and childhood “spills of joy.” As Minnesota poet Margaret Hasse writes, each poem grows larger, “like a small bird that opens its great wings in flight.”

Margot is also the author of “Turning the Feather Around: My Life in Art,” her 1998 biography of George Morrison, Minnesota’s premier Ojibwe artist. Margot spent years as a Minnesota writer-in-the-schools, traveling the state in all weather to inspire young people to write. She has also taught writing at the University of Minnesota, Hamline University, and Metro State. She lives in St. Paul with her librarian husband Fran Galt, and their cat Julia.
