Tour the Tracy Conservation Easement
Please note: Registration for this event will close on Sunday, June 26 at 5:00pm. Directions will be sent via email before the event.
This is a unique opportunity to tour the Tracy (Green Creek) conservation easement property. Michelle and Chris Tracy donated a conservation easement to LTC on their 485-acre parcel in 2007. They are graciously providing an opportunity to visit their property to share its story. Michelle and Chris (and their sons – Mike & Nick) have worked with several organizations and partners, including the Michigan DNR Game Bird Preservation Program, Michigan Tree Farm System, Partners for Fish & Wildlife, American Bird Conservancy, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Ruffed Grouse Society, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, foresters and habitat specialists to carry out a variety of habitat management projects. Their property, located in northern Cheboygan County, boasts forests, forest openings and wetlands and the Green Creek flows through it. The property is home to eagles, sand-hill cranes, mergansers, ducks, grouse, woodcock, bobcat, various song birds and raptors, snowshoe hare, bear, coyotes, beaver, otters and much more. Come see this beautiful property and learn from Chris and project participants about conservation goals, habitat improvement projects and life around Green Creek.
