Little Traverse Conservancy

In the last one hundred years, the landscape of this country has been changing faster than it’s being protected. Alarmed at the disappearance of mature forests, scenic prairies, essential biodiversity and “breathing room,” land conservation groups have worked to protect an estimated 40 million acres that are now set aside as wildlife and plant habitat, act as buffers of our Great Lakes water resources and provide public access to nature. Thanks to efforts by Little Traverse Conservancy, a generous chunk of that protected land is located in Northern Michigan.

Conservation Resource Alliance

Members of the Conservation Resource Alliance know how to apply good science to restore water quality in rivers and stabilize stream banks. They know what it takes to remove old dams and culverts and improve habitat for fish. A key to their success is they know how to foster collaborative land-use solutions that bring together private landowners, government agencies, non-profits, volunteers, funders and businesses with shared goals and a long view.
