The GLC Board is pleased to announce that Ian Lizzadro-McPherson is moving into the role of Program Director of GLC. Ian has deep roots in the U.P. His great grandparents immigrated to find a better life in the Keweenaw in the early 1900’s. While Ian grew up in Illinois, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wisconsin, he spent most childhood summers at Gratiot Lake where he forged a deep connection to Gratiot Lake and GLC. Ian recently relocated to the area. 

Ian has a BA in Biology and Chemistry with a focus in limnology from Lawrence University. He also has a solid resume in the environmental field. He is enthusiastic about the importance of conservation and good environmental stewardship and is a strong advocate for conservation and sustainability. Ian hopes to spark that same passion in his own children and future generations. He looks forward to his role in GLC.

His motto: “Lead by example, learn through experience, and live with nature.”
