Our annual activities have become established traditions. Our Annual Meeting is held on Memorial Day weekend, and features food, drink and a timely environmental program.
Below are descriptions of recent annual meeting programs.
TWO CENTURIES OF THE PEOPLE OF THE CHEQUAMEGON REGION TRAVELING, WORKING AND PLAYING ON THE ICE OF LAKE SUPERIOR. DOGSLEDS AND WINDSLEDS, LOGGERS AND LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS, FARMERS AND FISHERMEN, NEAR DISASTERS AND NARROW ESCAPES, A FEW SAD STORIES AND A FEW JOYOUS ONES.
There are many stories hidden among the islands and lighthouses of the Apostle Islands and Chequamegon Bay. This illustrated program gives a glimpse of several of these accidents, large and small, found and yet to be discovered; ships wrecked by fire, groundings, fog, and storms ... some lost, some recovered, some still missing.Read More

The Madeline Island Wilderness Preserve is a non-profit land trust dedicated to the protection and preservation of natural areas on Madeline Island. The nature preserve lands are open to the public for hiking, skiing, berry-picking and hunting. MIWP is committed to education and advocacy — each summer we sponsor field trips and evening programs. Madeline Island is adjacent to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on the South Shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin.
