Nature Center foundation banquet
The Emmet County Conservation Foundation held its banquet this past Saturday. All proceeds benefit the Environmental Education Endowment of the Foundation and help support the mission of the ECNCF to enhance and sustain environmental education and recreation for all residents and visitors of Emmet County.

Conservation Foundation banquet Saturday night. Several children tried it out. Ultimately, the canoe will be going on a fishing trip to Canada in the coming weeks.
