September 18, 2015

Ice Caves and Leelanau Splendor

Come, relax and listen to local photographer Ken Scott as he highlights his nationally recognized photos of the Ice Caves of Leelanau in 2014. Ken’s approach to photography ranges from whimsical to amazing and his work has been critiqued as “photographs of an ephemeral moment or place that capture the essence of Leelanau County.” He will also sample photography done for the Leelanau Conservancy of the scenic properties they have protected over the past 25 years. Then enjoy a retrospect of 10 years of his “Back Page” Leelanau Enterprise photos.

Slabtown and the Lumber Boom                

What do you really know about Traverse City’s Slabtown district? Get to know the who, what and why of that historic neighborhood east of Division Street and near the bay. Back by popular demand is local Traverse City historian Maddy Lundy who will enlighten you with a historical journey of Slabtown and the lumber boom that shaped our region. It was the people living in Slabtown, and the lumber industry, that actually built Traverse City, yet they are often the forgotten ones.

University Center Rm. 215/217
