Bluestem Meadow and Reflection Labyrinth

Offield Family Viewlands
Harbor Springs, MI

Remembering loved ones through a beautiful and accessible labyrinth amidst a meadow restoration.

MAKING SOLACE ACCESSIBLE
With your help, there will soon be a reflection labyrinth and meadow constructed at the Offield Family Viewlands.

BUILDING A LABYRINTH
Partnering with Bluestem Meadow, a small group of inspired women, Little Traverse Conservancy will construct a labyrinth and pathways at The Viewlands that are barrier free to people with mobility disabilities. Bluestem Meadow has passionately provided leadership, donations, and coordination for this special project. The labyrinth will be tucked away to offer guests a reflective experience and also overlook the pond to offer a beautiful view from the labyrinth.

GETTING TO THE LABYRINTH
A new accessible pathway will be constructed from a new parking area to the labyrinth, which will be created with as low of a grade as possible. The labyrinth will be situated in a wildflower meadow and additional wildflowers, flowering shrubs, and shade trees will be planted along the pathway to enhance the serene atmosphere. There will be two benches to provide additional opportunities to slow down and reflect while in nature.
