Formerly a buffalo ranch, this diverse land is now one of only two GEMS (Grouse Enhanced Management Sites) in the Lower Peninsula. These sites are intensively managed, accessible and walk-in ruffed grouse hunting areas. Lee Grande Ranch offers a mixture of woods, open fields, creeks, and ponds.
A network of criss-crossing non-motorized trails allow for low-impact recreation including cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and hunting.
In 2007, LTC held this magnificent land in trust for the State of Michigan in the first such arrangement for the state. A conservation easement was also placed on the land. The land is now owned and managed by the State.
