If you’re looking to up your skills in the kitchen, Oryana Community Co-op has a number of online cooking classes coming up, starting with “How to Cook Seafood” on Monday, April 12th. The class is just $10, and you’ll learn how to buy, store, and prepare a variety of seafood, including mussels, seared scallops, and slow roasted Arctic char. Oryana Community Co-op has two locations in Traverse City where you can pick up ingredients to make and show off your new recipe skills!
Plan to join the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society virtually on April 15th to learn about one of the Great Lakes most famous shipwrecks. This Virtual History Talk will feature Valerie van Heest, who’s a Michigan historian, underwater explorer, and author, talking about the facts and legends surrounding the Le Griffon shipwreck, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the “Expedition Unknown” History Channel episode that focused on this 1679 shipwreck.
The 6th Annual “Jeep the Mac” event returns at the end of the month for a weekend of Jeep-focused fun. The weekend of April 23rd will include a group ride across the Mackinac Bridge, ferry passes to Drummond Island for off-road and trail riding, street cruises, and lots of Jeep fun. Registration is open now on the St. Ignace Visitors Bureau website for this event, which draws Jeep enthusiasts from around the Midwest each year.
