Sister Marie Kopin was invited for the second time to the Michigan Nature Association’s (MNA) “President’s Council” dinner and special guest speaker event. It was held at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing, Michigan, with the board of trustees present to honor a number of life members, stewards and those making significant contributions to MNA. Sister Marie has been a co-steward of the Alta Warren Parsons Memorial Nature Sanctuary in Clare County, Michigan, for a number of years and has begun a series of specialized mycology educational events there for the public.

The photo shows Marie with MNA board president Aubrey Golden and Jon Breithaupt, executive director of the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
Marie notes that this information may give us insight into our own possible contribution to an Ohio nature preserve association of some kind.
