The Gathering in the North



September 1, 2018

Sunrise to Sunset


This event is a coming together of many different organizations centered on the love of forests and the biome they support, specifically this year, bees.

MooseWood Nature Center will be hosting The Gathering in the North, a skill share event bringing several partnering organizations together to make this special event happen.


Here are some of the wonderful groups working together this year: Yellowdog Watershed Preserve, Marquette Regional History Center, Marquette Food Coop, and the NMU Center for Native American Studies.  If you’re interested, tell us more and lets work together.

Guest Speaker
