Today’s guest is Erica Peterson, Board President of Friends of the Apostle Islands. The Friends group supports the national lakeshore of the Apostle Islands, comprised of 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland along Lake Superior. The lakeshore has natural beauty, sea caves, cultural treasures, and historic lighthouses that guided Lake Superior shipping for many decades. The volunteer-run Friends of the Apostle Islands raises money to support programs and capital projects at the lakeshore.
