Bjorklunden of Door County Presents Various Seminars

From June 26 to July 1, Lawrence University’s Björklunden is offering the seminar “Discovering Nature’s Songs II” with David Stokes and Ken Lonnquist.

Hiking and exploring with Stokes, participants will collect memories, examine live animals, and get a close-up encounter with the nature of Björklunden. Participants will then create and perform songs inspired by their trek with singer-songwriter Ken Lonnquist.
