Bjِrklunden Holds Fall Seminars

Lawrence University’s Björklunden is excited to announce that there are openings in the 2008 fall seminar series. Lawrence University has sponsored a seminar series at Björklunden, a pristine 425-acre estate on the shore of Lake Michigan, since 1980. During the week, seminar participants stay in a modern 17,000-square foot "lodge" that retains the estate’s Norwegian heritage. (Commuters are welcome.)

Seminar classes, covering topics ranging from mushrooms, the ‘Beat’ Generation, knitting, and the 2008 presidential election meet weekday mornings and some evenings with remaining free-time open for exploration of the area’s many cultural and recreational opportunities, or simple relaxation at Björklunden’s meadows, woods, and mile-long, unspoiled Lake Michigan shoreline.
