In partnership with the National Parks of Lake Superior Foundation, we invite you to spend an evening hearing stories and music from the unique landscape of Isle Royale National Park. Learn about the ongoing restoration of wolves on the island, hear songs that were written in this remote wilderness and learn about the years-long work that has gone into preserving this remarkable place.
Participants will hear from Isle Royale National Park Superintendent (Ret.) Phyllis Green about the island’s iconic wolf recovery effort. She will also discuss the historic longest-running predator-prey study of wolves and moose on Isle Royale and the intricate process of capturing more wolves to bring to the island.
Musician David Huckfelt will speak about his time on the island and perform music that was inspired during his time as an Artist in Residence at the park. Leaving behind the comforts of the modern world, he spent two weeks writing in solitude at Isle Royale, transforming the mysterious and lonesome island’s spirits into a stunning debut solo album, “Stranger Angels.”
