Nation’s Most Remote National Park Is Mostly Water

Superintendent of Isle Royal National Park Joins Sharon Kleyne on Air. Natural Science Thrives on Isle Royal National Park Says Kleyne.

Guest: Phyllis A. Green, Superintendent, Isle Royal National Park (Houghton, Michigan),

Sharon Kleyne, internationally respected water researcher and educator, knows that if you find yourself in a wild natural location, you would be wise to have packed along some products to replenish the body water vapor you will lose due to dehydration. In addition to packing lots of drinking water, you would need fresh, pure water for your skin and eyes. That’s why Kleyne and her research center colleagues at Bio-Logic Aqua® Resarch Water Life Science® created and made available Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Both products contain only 100 percent pure, fresh Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® replenishes your skin’s body water vapor; Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements and replenishes your eyes’ tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. Both products are delivered to the skin or eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier.

Phyllis A. Green, the Superintendent of Isle Royal National Park on the shores of Lake Superior near Houghton, Michigan, shared with Kleyne that Isle Royal is the most remote and hardest to visit national park in the entire U.S. park system. It is most immediately accessible from the shores of Minnesota and Canada, but even then the ferry ride or motor boat ride can take up to six hours. There are no cars on the island and no permanent residents. This makes for a pristine environment for hikers and people who like to fish. Wildlife lovers, said Green, are not disappointed. Red foxes, red squirrels and beavers are plentiful. The island is also the site of the longest, long-term study of a predator-prey system between moose and eastern timber wolves. Both large mammals still inhabit the island, though wolves usually avoid human contact.

As an international water and water vapor evaporation expert, Kleyne was intrigued to learn that the island is really a compact series of tiny islands and that the island itself is mostly water. That is why the beavers still thrive there. Island land mass is mostly covered by boreal forest that combines with the oxygen-rich waters to produce delightful, sweet-breathing air.

Green shared that the indigenous people of the Ojibway tribe had lived on Isle Royal for 4,500 years. Caucasian fur traders came to the island in the 1600s, followed by copper miners in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It wasn’t until 1930 that President Herbert Hoover declared the area a state park. Green described the park’s educational Junior Rangers Program for children and students and encouraged people to check out Isle Royal’s website to plan a visit. According to Green, the site is especially user friendly regarding trip-planning because it can be so difficult to get there. Even so, the park, which is open only from April through October, welcomes on average only 18,000 visitors a year. “The Ojibways,” said Green, “had a name in their language for Isle Royal that means ‘the good place’.”

Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, also suggested that park visitors carry a portable canister of Bio Med Wash®, a pure water spray eye wash that is also highly effective treating wounds.
