As of the summer of 2018, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy is working on several exciting land protection and stewardship projects throughout our five-county service area. Our Priority Land Atlas (PLA) guides us as we protect land throughout the region.
The PLA includes carefully selected scoring criteria that we use to identify properties with the highest conservation values in our service area. By taking a close look at natural features, habitat rarity, size of wetlands, length of shoreline, adjacency to previously protected land and more, we’ve got a clear and concise map of the best remaining unprotected jewels in our area.
For more information on any of these projects, please contact Anthony Rupard at (231) 929-7911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
