April 27, 2017

The Marion Public Library is pleased to present Pete Griffin, the Story Telling Ranger on Thursday, May 4th, at 7:00 p.m.
Pete grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In 1973 he started his career with the US Forest Service as a wildlife biologist. In 1999, he was promoted to District Ranger on the Tongass National Forest in Juneau, Alaska. It was at this time that he started recording short natural history vignettes for radio. Titled, Tongass Trails, the essays documented his exploration of the temperate rainforest and eventually incorporated Pete’s experiences growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Pete Griffin, the Storytelling Ranger will be speaking at the Marion Library on May 4th, at 7:00 pm.

Following his retirement from the forest service, he told natural history stories aboard the Disney Wonder, a 2600-passenger cruise ship. On board he performed stage shows for hundreds of passengers at a time, featuring unique aspects of some common and not-so-common species of plants and wildlife of Southeast Alaska.

Nature lovers, hunters, campers, sportsmen and anyone who enjoys parks, join us for this very special evening with Pete Griffin.
