"Mark Newman, the author of Sooper Yooper, is visiting schools with a special show-and-tell presentation detailing the story of the Great Lakes and the hidden dangers of sea lamprey, zebra mussels, Asian carp and other invasive species.
Offered as an engaging, interactive roadshow, the Sooper Tour is making stops throughout the Midwest, from smaller towns in the Upper Peninsula to bigger cities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. This program is free to schools through the support of the Wege Foundation.
