Professor John Anderton and Jim Koski will conduct a walking tour of Presque Isle.  Participants will learn the interesting geological history, as well as many other interesting facts about the cultural history of the ‘Island.’ From the early explorers in the early 1600-1700s to contemporary times, Presque Isle has a unique history.
If you plan to attend, organizers say you should wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk over uneven ground.
