UPEC's Nancy Warren wins Petosky Prize. HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - Nominated by the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition (UPEC), long time board member, Nancy Warren of Ewen, has been named the winner of the Petoskey Prize for Environmental Leadership. The prize is given annually by the Michigan Environmental Council, based in Lansing. The Petoskey Prize recognizes a volunteer activist whose outstanding grassroots environmental leadership is marked by commitment, creativity and courage. Inaugurated in 2001, the award carries a $5,000 gift which Nancy has designated to be used to further wolf education and research in Michigan. On learning of the prize, Nancy said “I am humbled and in awe.” Nancy is being honored for her many years of work on behalf of numerous environmental causes. Her environmental leadership skills extend back many decades. They focus around the core goals of protecting and enhancing public lands, promoting ecosystem integrity and biodiversity, restoring habitat and sustainable species populations, increasing informed citizen involvement in democratic environmental stewardship, and building organizational capacities to pursue these goals. Nancy's passion for wolves began in the early 1990s as wolves began to recolonize the state. Nancy discovered that for wolves to survive there needs to be human tolerance of wolf behavior. Her goal is to have a sustainable wolf population within suitable habitat. — uppermichigansource.com . #upec #upperpeninsula #uppermichigan #environmentalist #conservation #wolf #wildlife #dontpollute

Mom took me to the park for the first time this spring. It was so much fun! Mom didn't care for the clouds of bugs that seemed to have just hatched, but I didn't mind! So many new scents to follow and things to pee on!! Trees, signs, light poles, big rocks. Cant wait to go back again! #adventuresofmadmax #madmaxloveshiswalks #madmaxmoments #puremichigan #eventhebugsarepureinmichigan #Ludingtonpark #luckydog #yooperdog #uppermichigan #wildpuppy #howmanytimescanadogpeeinonehour #maxandhismom
Showing off the new and improved (bigger sized) upper Michigan cookie cutter. We put together a lot of 6 piece sets for various gift shops in Michigan. Doesn’t this picture look serene? I would love to go sit on a lake and soak up the surroundings. Have an interest in a cookie cutter shown?

What’s the most miraculous real-life sky you’ve ever seen? - Detail Shot: Different Colors 😍 bold greens for some Northern Lights ~ a current commission. - - Growing up in Upper Michigan we had phenomenal sunsets all summer long, as we had a distant view over Lake Superior where colors would bounce around with vivid pinks and reds 💗 did you know that in Upper Michigan there are a few weeks a year where the sunset is at 10 pm?! It’s amazing.
"ELE" or Everybody Love Everybody. Thank you to @stevesolinski , a teacher at MSHS, for sharing his passion. He has ELE stickers and jewelry to remind him and his students the importance of these letters. Whether you are a graduating senior, middle schooler or a mom...please remember ELE as we wrap up the school year!
my first time shooting engagement pictures and it was nothing short of magical, thanks to these two!!!
A lovely yooper oasis, right in town. This is why I love the U.P. This is why I live where the air hurts my face. Both I g better than this. #yooper #yoopers #puremichigan #stream #forest #uppermichigan #upperpeninsula #upperpeninsulamichigan #paradise
Water plants growing on a dead tree. I may or may not be singing the circle of like in my head right now lol #waterplant #wildplants #stream #deadtree #fromdeathcomeslife #yoopers #yooper #uppermichigan #upperpeninsula #upperpeninsulamichigan #puremichigan #forestfloor #forest
Wild violets. I was almost tempted to pick them and bring them home and try them (edible) but there were only a few, so I let them be. ⭐⭐Remember if you are going to forage for wild edibles in your own woods you are 110% sure of what you are gathering before you eat it, check, double check, then check again. Also don't pick all of it in the area. Leave some for the wildlife and enough so it can come back next year. ⭐⭐ #wildviolets #violets #forestfloor #yooper #yoopers #wildplants #uppermichigan #upperpeninsula #upperpeninsulamichigan #puremichigan

I can almost imagine a tiny mermaid sunning herself in the moss covered rock. You can't help but imagine magical things here. #puremichigan #yooper #yoopers #uppermichigan #upperpeninsula #upperpeninsulamichigan #stream #forest #magical #mermaid
So many beautiful things in the forest, I only wish I was able to capture them as I see them. But I keep trying ☺ #puremichigan #yooper #yoopers #uppermichigan #upperpeninsula #upperpeninsulamichigan #stream #forest

How can your day not be good when it starts out like this? We had an early start working on our cottage and our reward was this sunrise. I’m in love! #lakesuperior #michigan #sunrise
