Water Resources Discussion

23 Feb 2020 | 05:30 pm

Please join us for a presentation and discussion on water resources, by award-winning author and church member, Jeff Alexander.

Jeff Alexander is an award-winning author and former environmental journalist. He spent two decades covering the Great Lakes and other environmental issues for several Michigan newspapers, including the Muskegon Chronicle. His 2009 book about invasive species, Pandora’s Locks: The Opening of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway, has been called the “definitive history of a Great Lakes tragedy.” The Grand Haven resident also wrote an acclaimed book about the Muskegon River. In 2017 he was commissioned to write the lead essay in a book that accompanies The Great Lakes Cycle, an art exhibit traveling around the region. Alexander will discuss some of the profound ecological changes that have unfolded in the Great Lakes, including the arrival of a foreign mussel that has made the water in Lake Michigan clearer than Lake Superior.

This event is part of the First Presbyterian Church Community Artist Series and is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
