Each month we'll have a discussion about living in the Keweenaw aimed at participatory understanding of natural processes and natural changes. We will bring experts to explain and answer questions. The museum provides a small seminar room and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We are particularly interested in getting citizens involved in watching and measuring environmental changes.  Informal meetings start at 6:30 and the more formal discussion, with questions,  is from 7 to 8 pm.

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 develop deeper interaction between people and the cultural and natural history of our region. Event organizers, Susan Martin and Bill Rose, note "The Keweenaw is a very special environment, and it guides our lives. The connection we feel is strongly influenced by Lake Superior and other geological elements, as well as our cultural history.    In exploring our region's   natural history,   we will ask:

'What is the future of the Keweenaw? ’  'How do we detect and define environmental changes? ’ How does the public participate in measuring and understanding changes?,  How is data on changes in earth conditions best communicated? ’  "
