This Saturday, March 28, the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition will present Celebrate the U.P.! beginning at 10:00 am at locations in Marquette, Michigan. Marge Forslin, Lorana Jinkerson, and Doug Welker will present at 1:30 pm in the Sky Room of the Landmark Inn as follows:

1:30-2:30 "North Country Trail in the Central U.P." and "Exploring the Wild and Spectacular Trap Hills of Ontonagon County." Marge and Lorana will present an overview of the North Country National Scenic Trail, followed by highlights of the trail as it traverses the central U.P. from western Alger Co. to eastern Baraga Co. Doug will use photos and maps to show how high rock cliffs, wild and scenic rivers, waterfalls, a rich copper mining history, and spectacular views from the North Country Trail make the Trap Hills special and why some are proposing a National Recreation Area there.

Other quality programs will also be presented throughout the day. For full information, visit the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition web site
