Carnegie Museum Seminar: 2014-15

Carnegie Museum monthly seminar series for 2014 – 2015

The Carnegie Museum of the Keweenaw, located in downtown Houghton, hosts monthly seminars about the natural history of the Keweenaw Peninsula.  All seminars are held in the recently restored Community Room on the ground level of this historic building. Lectures are free, open to the public, and barrier free (wheelchair accessible).

The Museum aims to developing a deeper interaction between people and the cultural and natural history of our region. Event organizer, Bill Rose, notes "The Keweenaw is very special, and it guides our lives. The connection we feel is strongly influenced by our natural history, as well as our cultural history.  In exploring our region's natural history, we will ask 'What are the elements of Keweenaw Natural History?' and 'How can the community discuss, participate and celebrate these elements?'" 

For each monthly lecture, the museum will open at 6:30 for refreshments; lectures and discussion occur from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. Sponsored by local businesses, each lecture features a different leader in the field of a natural history heritage.  Please contact the Museum for further information, 906-482-7140.
