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 three properties in the Wild Shores Initiative:

  • A combined total of 118 acres 

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

  • 1,100 feet of shoreline on Lake Huron

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

 

CURRENT PROJECT GOAL: $500,000

 

YOUR GENEROSITY, YOUR LEGACY

$500,000 is currently needed for the protection and care of these three properties and to seed the protection of future shoreline projects. If you are interested in making a potentially tax deductible gift to Little Traverse Conservancy, contact Emily Hughes, Chief Development Officer, at emily@landtrust.org or 231.347.0991 OR click the links to donate.

* All gifts will be matched 1:1 up to $125,000.
