Precious Waters of the Penokees Photography Exhibit Opening
A celebration of the beauty that stands to be lost from mining

Photography by Northern Wisconsin artists will highlight the pristine waters and unspoiled beauty of the areas in the Penokee Hills that would fall within a proposed open-pit iron mine. The event will include speakers from the area discussing the special nature of the Penokees and potential impacts of a mine, and will be followed by a social hour at Brocach Irish Pub (7 W Main St.). All are welcome, and media are particularly encouraged to attend. The exhibit will continue in place through Friday, November 18.
