Boyne Heritage Center hosting Three Public Open House Events


Did you know that one of the important jobs in the long-ago lumbering industry was the work of the four men in the cook shanty? They were known as first cook, second cook, and two flu kids. The duty of the first cook was to be in charge and to be the pastry cook. The second cook prepared and cooked the meat and vegetables and called the men to meals by blowing on a long horn. The flu kids swept and scrubbed the floors, set the table, washed dishes, prepared vegetables and served the meals. Teamwork.

What is remarkable about this small fact from this treasured industry is that we have a pictorial history of it - and we want to share that with you.

The Boyne Heritage Center is proud to announce the first of three public Open Houses to be held on Friday evenings, the first of which is July 9th. We will have the doors to our unfinished museum space open for you to walk through, read about some history and take a walk around the original LaFrance fire truck on display. 

We are fortunate that our community’s historical collection contains thousands of photographs, documents and artifacts from which we can piece together our history and tell the story of those that came before us. The Boyne Heritage Center is in the process of creating a museum-quality digital catalog of these treasures and planning for a full outfitting of the museum space. Currently, historical photographs are being painstakingly unpacked, cleaned, conserved, scanned at high resolution, catalogued and re-housed into archival safe storage materials. Some of these will be displayed at each of the upcoming Open Houses. 

We invite you to join us, delight in the treasures we have unearthed and perhaps learn something new about our wonderful town. Our museum space is located in the Boyne City City Hall, 319 N. Lake Street. See you on July 9th!

Conservancy Hosts Week-long Bioblitz  

A celebration of biodiversity July 6-10
Little Traverse Conservancy is seeking participants in this year’s BioBlitz, helping the organization record the species found at nature preserves around the region throughout the week of July 6-10, 2021.
“We are looking for people who are willing to explore a few Conservancy nature preserves or working forest reserves during the BioBlitz week and to document the plants, fungi, insects, birds and more that they find using the free app iNaturalist,” explained the Conservancy’s Volunteer Coordinator Cacia Lesh. “In addition, we are offering free guided programs studying a variety of flora and fauna from lichens to small mammals during that week.”
 
As the natural world is changing around us, people are working together worldwide to help protect biodiversity. You can join the Conservancy in our effort to learn more about what lives on and in the properties that have been protected by people who have worked with the Conservancy since 1972.
iNaturalist is an online, crowd-sourced species identification system that is used by citizen scientists around the world. Some of the Conservancy’s preserves and reserves have very few iNaturalist observations. We challenge you to explore those lands and help us build more biodiversity observations. 
Prizes will be awarded for most flora or fauna species on iNaturalist at the end of the week.
To learn more and to sign up, visit www.landtrust.org/education/bioblitz/

Little Traverse Conservancy is your local land trust. Individuals, families, and businesses make annual donations to ensure that LTC can protect land throughout northern Michigan for your family and generations to come. Nature Preserves and Working Forest Reserves are open to you and can be found throughout the northern lower and eastern upper peninsulas of Michigan. LTC receives no government funding for its operations. In addition to offering voluntary land protection options for landowners, we reach thousands of children with environmental education programs each year. More than 110 miles of trails are available on dozens of the more than 200 nature preserves. A free nature preserve and trail app – LTC Explorer – is available for download. For more information, visit www.landtrust.org or call 231.347.0991.

Affordable Housing Support Needed

Habitat for Humanity Michigan and Michigan Community Capital have been working hard in communities across Michigan to deliver workforce and affordable housing in an environment with exceptional price and rental rate challenges. We know from discussions with many of you that the gating item to getting more units in the market and taking some of the intense pressure off of employers and residents is the cost gap. We also know that in many scenarios, few if any existing tools are sufficient.
 
We are asking you to add your voice to our pending discussions with state administration and legislature by signing on to this initiative. Your signature indicates that you and your constituents see housing as an issue in your community. Please share with your contacts that may also support this effort. Our hope is to collect as many signatures as possible to demonstrate wide regional support for this initiative by 5PM Wednesday, June 30th. Even after that date, your voice will still be powerful.
