Protected, owned and managed by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy.

This 77-acre sanctuary sits approximately ten miles South East of Traverse City and borders the Brown Bridge Quiet Area. It consists roughly of 90% wetland habitat, of which 25% is a unique fen that is botanically very rich with orchids and other rare plants. This sanctuary was donated to GTRLC by Rotary Camps and Services.

Because of sensitive wildlife features, this property is currently managed as a sanctuary. It is open to the public, but there is no established trail system. To help navigate the preserve please check out and download the Boundary Map.
