GLIN==> Fwd: NEXT WEEKEND! Sustainable Futures Conference; And there'sa prize!


We think the best prize is bringing Lake Superior's people who care 
together to envision and strategize about Lake Superior's Sustainable 
future.  But, for those interested in more worldly rewards, there's 
also going to be a drawing for a really neat Pendleton blanket.

Complete details below.  Our central location for the symposium is 
the Bayfield Pavillion.

By road, Bayfield is located on Wisconsin Highway 13, about 20 miles 
north of its intersection with highway 2, just west of Ashland, 

Follow the large, prominently placed signs right downtown to where 
Highway 13 takes a sharp left turn north.  Keep going one more block 
and the Pavillion is on your left.  (if you get wet, you're in the 
Lake and you've gone too far.) Look for the Symposium signs directing 
you toward the lake-front.

Complete schedule for the Sustainable Future portion of our program 
follows.  For more information about the kayaking program, visit the 
Inland Sea Society's web site:  http://www.inlandsea.org 


Note:  All field trips depart from the Pavillion.  See session 
listings for room assignments.  There will be a complete room 
assignments roster (WRITTEN IN VERY LARGE LETTERS) in the Pavillion 
throughout the weekend.
