Concert to follow at 8:00PM

Save the Trees is our beloved cocktail party. Come and enjoy the unmatched view with all your favorite Conservancy friends. You can purchase a sponsorship or tickets to attend  directly supporting our land protection efforts in northern Michigan.

For the third year in a row, you can stay after Save the Trees for Rock the Forest – a unique concert on the green. Tickets for the concert are sold separately ($50 from each ticket is a gift to LTC). This second event is BYOB – think picnic blanket with your favorite drinks and snacks overlooking Little Traverse Bay and listening to live music.



We’re so excited to welcome the Castellows to northern Michigan for Rock the Forest! The Castellows are an American neotraditional country music trio consisting of sisters Eleanor, Lily, and Powell Balkcom. Born in Georgetown, Georgia, the sisters moved to Nashville in 2023 and signed a record deal with Warner Music Nashville and Warner Records. 

Listen here.
