Protecting significant natural, scenic, and farm lands - and advancing stewardship -- now and for future generations.
With the support of landowners, individual donors, foundations and volunteers and the partnership of local, state, and federal agencies, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy has protected more than 44,000 acres of land and over 140 miles of shoreline along the region’s exceptional rivers, lakes and streams. Since 1991, the Conservancy has diligently carried out its mission to protect natural, scenic, and farm lands - and advance land stewardship - now and for future generations.
We focus our land conservation efforts to permanently protect critical watersheds, high-quality farmland, valuable forest land and ecologically significant dunes along Lake Michigan’s beautiful and endangered shore. This work protects water quality, safeguards critical wildlife habitat, helps ensure the future viability of farming in our region and protects the viewsheds that make our region so breathtaking.
To date, the Conservancy has protected and directly manages over 10,000 acres of natural land held open to the public throughout our five-county service area - a feat we cannot accomplish without our incredible volunteer colleagues.
