• Preserves

    Get out and enjoy nature! The Conservancy owns and maintains nature preserves and have assisted in creating municipally owned parks and natural areas which are open to the public year-round in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Manistee counties. Many of these special places have managed trails which provide lots of opportunities for outdoor pursuits.

  • Land Protection & Stewardship

    At the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, we think about our landscape in terms of watersheds, rivers, scenic transportation corridors, and the vital clusters of our region's working farms and forests. By thinking about our community in this way, we are able to evaluate how certain land uses and protection and stewardship efforts in specific areas will impact the things our community members value the most – access to our region's majestic shorelines; opportunities for hiking, biking, hunting, canoeing, birding, fishing and other outdoor activities; safe, clean water; a sense of rural character; respect for private property rights; and a healthy economy.
