Fantastic article in Lake Superior Magazine interviewing our Executive Director, Tom Irvine. Please take a couple minutes to read it, as Tom speaks to our mission here at NPLSF, and talks about the initiatives we are currently sponsoring.
Here's an excerpt:
Reflections on Supporting Our Five U.S. National Parks
The Lake Superior neighborhood boasts five national parks in the United States, covering just about every variety you can think of under the National Park Service’s umbrella.
There are two national lakeshores – the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin and Pictured Rocks in Michigan – a national monument at Grand Portage, Minnesota, an island park at Isle Royale and a widespread collaboration of historic sites around the Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan.
Supporting all of them is the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation (NPLSF), launched through the request of two park superintendents around 2007 and having grown from an eager band of volunteer board members to a federally chartered philanthropic partner with paid staff.
