We save nature & you can too

Safeguarding Michigan's natural beauty and the conservation values of our most important lands since 1972



Land conservancies, also known as land trusts, are community-based, nonprofit organizations dedicated to the permanent protection and stewardship of natural and working lands for the public good.

Our friend Jim Reed

On December 28, 2022, the conservancy lost a great friend: Jim Reed. He is survived by his wife Barbara, 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 2 great grandsons. The Reeds joined the conservancy in 1994 and have been staunch supporters ever since. Jim served as Board President, volunteered countless hours and eventually received our Tom Bullen Award for outstanding service in 2008. 


Jim cared deeply about the environment. In 1991, he led the Independence Township Groundwater Leadership team to properly dispose of batteries and oil and co-founded the "Independence Goes Green" conservation ballot initiative for Independence Township residence in 2008. He also volunteered for Clinton River cleanups, The Grand Traverse Land Conservancy, Citizens for Climate Change and numerous other organizations.

His contributions to the community and the environment are a lasting legacy that benefits us all.

Big Help For A Little Butterfly

Less than a 100 in the world!

A  supporter is offering a 2:1 match to complete the $275,000 campaign to save the habitat for the critically endangered Poweshiek Skipperling Butterfly. 

Your $50 becomes $150. Funds will be used to restore the butterfly's ecosystem in Davisburg, Michigan.
