Welcome to the Grand Traverse Humanists. If you value science, reason, and compassion and believe that humans are responsible for their own destiny, you have come to the right place. We are a community for the non-religious in the Grand Traverse area, offering a forum for discussing and advancing a secular worldview based on our common humanity. Our programs include monthly speakers and discussions, film and book groups, and various volunteer and social events. All are free and open to the public. Check out Upcoming Events below, or click on the calendar. Nontheists, agnostics, atheists, freethinkers, rationalists, humanists, and more…we welcome you to join us!
Please note: MEETINGS AT THE LIBRARY ARE TEMPORARILY ON HOLD. We are meeting outside in person when possible, and on Zoom as schedules allow. Check the Upcoming Events below for details.
In the last six months, four of our fellow Grand Traverse Humanists have died. We are saddened by the loss of Ed Rom, Walter Foote, Mark Gustafson, and Gordon Grimm. Let us remember them well.
- Meeting at the Library: Lake Invaders
Monday, May 8 2017
Meeting at the Library: Lake Invaders
7 p.m….610 Woodmere Ave., Traverse City
Join us for a presentation by William Rapai, author of Lake Invaders: Invasive Species and the Battle for the Future of the Great Lakes. There are over 180 exotic species in the Great Lakes, and most are innocuous…but a handful of them are conducting an all-out assault on the Great Lakes and winning the battle (sea lamprey, alewife, round goby, quagga mussel, zebra mussel, Eurasian watermilfoil, spiny water flea, and rusty crayfish). Mr. Rapai sounds a call to action and makes a strong case for what is at stake; examining the environmental, economical, and politic issues at stake in a balanced, lively, and accessible way.
Volunteer at the State Theatre
7:30 – 10:30 p.m…State Theatre, 233 E Front Street, Traverse City
The third Monday of each month is Grand Traverse Humanists volunteer night at the State Theatre! Come take tickets, sell reasonably-priced popcorn and drinks, help with clean-up after, and earn a voucher for a future free movie.
