Student giving a presentation

On Friday, November 5, the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center and Center for Upper Peninsula Studies will present Sonderegger21 at the Northern Center on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Since 2001, the Sonderegger Symposium has been the pre-eminent conference on Upper Peninsula historical, cultural, economic and scientific topics. This year the theme is “Challenges” and the presentations will all focus on issues past and present that the region faces and ideas of how to address them. Admission is free and open to the public. There is no need to register. There will be a box lunch offered before the Keynote Address by Michigan State Senator, Ed McBroom.
