The Niagara Escarpment Resource Network (NERN) is currently immersed in re-invigorating its steering committee to offer engaging Waters of the Ledge/Ledge Tours and other events for the upcoming months and into 2016.
Founded in 1998, NERN has accomplished growing awareness of the value of our geological feature that connects our region of Wisconsin with Ontario, Michigan and all the way to New York State, through its events and outreach activities. Most recently, they have joined forces with our Canadian partners in Tobermory, Ontario, where they host an annual Sources of Knowledge Forum.
NERN is planning to offer a Wisconsin gathering in the coming years to complement these international events.
Additionally, watch for an opportunity to join NERN’s “Breaking Bread in the Holy Land” Tour, being set for mid-December, 2015, by coach bus. This special holiday tour will treat participants to an examination of some of the oldest and most historic churches in Calumet and Manitowoc Counties, followed by a hearty meal at an area supper club.
Other tours being planned for 2016 include the Door County Coastal Islands, Menominee Gorge & Falls, snowshoe and kayak/canoe paddles of the Killsnake Wildlife Area in winter and summer.
