7th Annual Sources of Knowledge Forum in Tobermory, May 8 to 10, 2015

The Door Peninsula in Wisconsin is the same size and shape as the Bruce Peninsula.  Surrounded on three sides by Lake Michigan, The Door enjoys the most western part of the escarpment or as they call it “The Ledge”!  In fact we are twins in many ways. Economically successful “The Door Peninsula” is anchored by a strong tourist industry.
