Summer Geotours, Isle Royale and Keweenaw

Land/Boat tours on Geoheritage happen in June and July and reservations open in early spring. The Isle Royale trip is featured by NAGT. It lasts 6 days (late June) and covers geosites in Eastern Isle Royale.  The one day Keweenaw trips (late July) focus on all five geoelements of Keweenaw Geoheritage.

New Geoheritage Books!

A new 64 page all color booklet about the Keweenaw and Isle Royale and their geoheritage (Title: How the rocks connect us) is now available. It is published by IRKPA.

We are also happy that the third edition of Walking Paths & Protected Areas of the Keweenaw (2009), republished by Michigan Nature Association, includes new geoheritage information and links to our web materials.
