The son of a geologist and an archeologist, Bob Kellum is the living descendent of an impressionable eight-year-old who was taken into the confidence of his family’s land. Fifty-eight years later, he works to honor that confidence as steward of 300 acres of highly variable land in the ‘Irish Hills’ of south-east Michigan. His interest in time comes from his sense that its experience is infinitely variable and that the priorities we see clearly with a long view, can bear little resemblance to the short-term priorities we live by. Bob is a founding member of the Stewardship Network’s Grand Raisin Conservation Community, a founding cooperator in the Iron Creek Land Community, a founding member and president of Oh These Irish Hills! and a board member of the Central Algoma Freshwater Coalition.
