Do you have a bucket list?  Does it include a remote backpacking adventure?  In the northwestern portion of Lake Superior is a unique and remote island archipelago.  Isle Royale National Park's 132,018 acres was federally designated as wilderness in 1976.  A venture by foot, canoe, or kayak into the park's interior can transport one back thousands of years.  Through a visual presentation Darryl "Buckeye" Smith tells of his week-long journey to the least visited of all the National Parks.  He will also include tips and details to help plan your own Isle Royale adventure as well as talk about Ohio's own Buckeye Trail.  Bring your curiosity and questions.

Some of Darryl "Buckeye" Smith's many interests are hiking and history.  He is a Buckeye Trail Association (BTA) Trustee and President of the Miami Rivers Chapter of the BTA.

Appalachian History and Culture


Exploring History

This presentation defines the Appalachian region and explores the history of those who settled here.  It provides insights into the origins of Appalachian culture and beliefs; important historical events which shaped the region; and the roles absentee ownership and extractive industries continue to play in the region.

Peggy Calestro and Julie Calestro-McDonald are a mother-daughter team who have been fascinated for more than 20 years with Central Appalachia.  Both have written about Appalachian history and culture.  Julie is a clinical social worker at OSU/Harding Behavioral Health and Medicine and Peggy is Vice President of the Ohio Children's Foundation.
