Praise for Loreen's Presentations:



"Loreen translates her passion for our Great Lakes into advocacy, education, science, humor and beauty by taking listeners and readers with her on these GREAT adventures. Her September 2014 five-city speaking blitz awed and inspired Indiana conservationists with the importance of preserving and protecting the Great Lakes. Loreen's adventures are truly amazing!"


-Martha Bolyard, former Associate Director of Philanthropy

The Nature Conservancy of Indiana

"Loreen is a great speaker: funny, informative, approachable, and so interesting...she even makes geology fascinating! She's been featured in the Detroit Free Press, the Chicago Sun-Times, and Country Woman Magazine....I highly recommend her."


-Colleen Leddy, Head Librarian

Stair Public Library

"I completely enjoyed your presentation last night at the Canton Public Library.

I was pleased with the turn out and especially your engaging presentation. I truly appreciated the fact that you concentrated on the geology, topography, beauty and history of the area....even though I am very familiar with many parts of northern Michigan, I learned a lot during your talk. Thank you for sharing your adventure with us."


-Marcia Barker, Program Specialist

Canton Public Library

"Our members look forward to each visit from Loreen! Her topics interest so many....We feel like we 'walk in her shoes' and share her adventures through her educational, interesting, and, at times, funny narrative. We hope she keeps exploring, keeps writing and keeps sharing her adventures!"


-Christine Friedt

Director Northview Senior Citizens
