Cheboygan County Land Protection
Two opportunities to protect land have arisen in Cheboygan County: expanding the Seven Springs Nature Preserve (Burt Lake) and adding to the Duncan Bay Nature Preserve (Lake Huron). Many land champions have already stepped up to aid in the protection of these sensitive wetlands. You too can be a part of protecting these special lands for future generations. Both projects are still in the works and seeking support.

Andreae Bridge Repairs Needed
The beloved Andreae Preserve is well known for the cabin and the bridge that crosses the Pigeon River connecting you to miles of trails between the Andreae Preserve and the adjacent Banwell Preserve. The bridge is in need of major repairs and we are currently fundraising to offset these high costs. Visit here for more details or call our office at 231.347.0991 if you would like to help!
The Land and Water Education Fund
Established in 2014 by Ian and Sally Bund, the Land and Water Education Fund supports Little Traverse Conservancy, Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, and the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. The purpose of the Fund is to provide income to support the education programs of LTC and TOMWC. Collaborative efforts such as the Watershed Academy which is now in its third year, will be supported by this fund, as will other educational efforts of the two groups. This fund provides donors with an option that makes the most of their investment in education programs that teach children about land and water issues.
We ask Conservancy supporters to consider supporting the Land and Water Education Fund in their will, trust, or other charitable giving plans.
