Annual Meeting, Peter Wolfe Chapter
The NCTA Peter Wolfe Chapter is hosting a guest speaker at our annual general membership meeting. The public is invited to this free event to hear Bill Van Korsky, a volunteer with the Marquette Regional History Center, who will give us a live presentation on his research into Native American Trail Marker Trees! He is working with the MRHC in finding and recording all these trees in Marquette County that have been marked 150+ years ago by Natives to show a trail path, or point to water or other significant features. He will share with us his photos and knowledge on how to distinguish these very special Native modified trees from naturally odd shaped trees, and how to record them with photos, measurements, pointing direction, GPS location, privacy protection etc. (Maybe someone will take up this project in our counties too!) The program will be recorded for later viewing.
A meet-and-greet will begin at 6:30 and the talk begins at 7:00 p.m. It will be in room G002 of the U.J. Noblet Forestry Building on the campus of Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich.
After the talk, we will have a short business meeting that will provide the opportunity to learn more about the Peter Wolfe Chapter, becoming a member, joining one of our public monthly hikes, board elections, and helping us maintain the Trail, etc. All are welcome.
