A Wilderness Sustained on Lake Superior

“Pukaskwa National Park: A Wilderness Sustained on Lake Superior” will be the featured presentation and both members and non-members are welcome to attend the February 9th event. As a Park Ecologist, Christine’s responsibilities include ecological integrity of the park plus the natural and cultural heritage protection programs.
