Björklunden is a 441-acre estate on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Baileys Harbor. The estate is part of Lawrence University which annually offers a popular series of week- long, adult-education seminars at the facility. The seminars are open to the public as well as Lawrence students. Björklunden recently completed plans for the 2018 seminar series which will be published and posted on their website on January 22. Bailey Koepsel, Assistant Director at Björklunden, says the goals of the seminars are two-fold.
Bailey says that the first seminar will be in June and topics for the summer will include: Art and the Cocktail; The Trump Revolution; The Ecology, Economics, and Politics of the Great Lakes; The Niagara Escarpment; and Birding. Koepsel says it is likely that some classes will fill early and recommends registering as soon as possible to ensure a spot. She says this advice is especially important for those wanting onsite lodging during the seminar.
