Love the land. Pass it on

Protecting significant natural, scenic and farm lands – and advancing stewardship – now and for future generations.

Featured Land Protection Project:

Finch Creek Nature Sanctuary (Proposed)

This spectacular 56-acre parcel safeguards critical wildlife habitat, builds on previously protected land and is extremely important from a water quality standpoint.

Protection of this sanctuary will also help safeguard water quality within the beloved Grass River Natural Area, a 1,492-acre natural area that sits just over a mile downstream from this parcel. Finch Creek flows from this property down to the GRNA, so protection of its upper reaches helps protect GRNA and the larger Chain of Lakes watershed.
