Rabbit Island Presentation
November 5, 2021
In August, the Portage Lake District Library and the Rabbit Island Foundation gave seven local high school students the experience of a lifetime. These students were awarded full scholarships to attend the library’s second Rabbit Island School, a 7-day arts and ecology expedition to a remote island in Lake Superior. On Thursday, November 18, the students will host an art exhibit and presentation on their experience from 6-7pm in the PLDL community room.Rabbit Island is a 91-acre forested island in Lake Superior, located four miles east of Rabbit Bay. The island has never been developed or subdivided, and a conservation easement granted in 2010 assures the island will remain healthy forever.This program was made possible with generous support from the Keweenaw Community Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
