From Friday Sept. 17 to Monday Sept. 20, we hosted the LSSU Biology Department's class "Ecology & Sustainability".  Eight students and two faculty members sailed with the ISEA crew to Northport, Power Island, Traverse City, Old Mission, Elk Rapids and back to Suttons Bay.  Some highlights are below:
