Michigan is lucky enough to have this wonderful presentation on Alaskan
wilderness traveling all over Michigan next week - to Grand Rapids,
Kalamazoo, Bay City/Saginaw area, East Lansing and Detroit!! 

Come see it when its in your area, and please forward this on to any
friends/colleague/groups who might be interested.

And FYI - next week is the 15th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill,
which still has not been and probably never will be completely clean up!
