Joanne and Micheal Cromley

“We have been supporters of LTC since 1993 when we purchased 240 acres with the sole purpose of putting it in a conservation easement. Since then we have watched LTC protect thousands of acres of land in northern Michigan.”

Johnson and Millie Hightower

“Millie and I are avid users of the LTC land preserves and trail systems. We support LTC financially because we want funding always to be available for existing preserve maintenance and future acquisitions.” 

Ben and Joanne Robinson

“I am pleased to serve as an ambassador for the LTC because of the amazing range of preserved lands, well maintained trails, and outstanding programs that all need financial support!”

Bill and Carolyn Stark

“The LTC mission complements our desire to preserve beautiful and environmentally important lands for year round enjoyment of the communities LTC serves.  We want our friends and neighbors to know that LTC is an outstanding organization that works with land owners, the State, and many volunteers for the benefit of our residents and students, and deserves their support.” 

Anne Wallace

“Northern Michigan is my special place. My rock. Our family has come back year after year since 1925. Supporting the LTC is one way I can give back to the community in hopes that my grandchildren (and yours) will be able to revel in the beauty of this area for years to come.”


“We enjoy hiking the beautiful preserves that the Little Traverse Conservancy protects.  But most importantly, we find it so rewarding finding species that are thriving on these preserves.  Northern Blue butterflies flitting along the grass next to the trail, song birds nesting, flowers blooming and American Kestrels young fledgling from their nest box.  Sharing this with others and encouraging them to help protect the species along with the land on which they rely is why we are ambassadors.”
