Wild Shores Initiative

Conserve Great Lakes Shoreline

WILD SHORES

A new program of the Conservancy’s, the Wild Shores Initiative aims to acquire large, natural shoreline properties, primarily in the Upper Peninsula and on many of the islands, where there are significant conservation opportunities at affordable prices. These lands are typically robust in conservation value and are essential areas for many species, including migratory birds. This initiative will be the home to a revolving group of worthy shoreline projects.

PROTECT WHAT IS GREAT

There are currently four properties in the Wild Shores Initiative:

  • A combined total of 214 acres 

  • 1,300 feet of shoreline on the St. Mary’s River

  • 1,600 feet of shoreline on Lake Huron

  • 2,331 feet of shoreline on Whitney Bay (Lake Huron)

 

CURRENT PROJECT GOAL: $1,000,000

 

YOUR GENEROSITY, YOUR LEGACY

$1,000,000 is currently needed for the protection and care of these four properties and to seed the protection of future shoreline projects.
