The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy will host its Winter Preservation Celebration on February 7, 2009. The event offers free activities to encourage people to enjoy some of the Conservancy’s 30,000+ acres of protected land with guided snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, interpretive hikes, special events for children, and much more.

Events will occur between 9:00am and noon at Hickory Meadows in Grand Traverse County, Pyatt Nature Preserve on Old Mission Peninsula, Elberta Dunes in Benzie County, Seven Bridges Natural Area in Kalkaska County, Maple Bay Natural Area near Elk Rapids, and Cosner Nature Preserve in Antrim County.

Following the events, participants are invited to attend a reception at CafĂ© Habana in Traverse City’s Old Town from 12:30-2:30 to enjoy live music performed by Angelo Meli, hot cocoa, and light appetizers.

All of the day’s activities are free and open to the public, but the Conservancy asks that those interested in attending please register on their website, www.gtrlc.org. The site also provides further information about the Winter Preservation Celebration, including details of the activities at each preserve and directions.

The Winter Preservation Celebration provides an opportunity for friends and supporters of the Regional Land Conservancy and others who value the natural, scenic and farm lands of our area to gather with Conservancy staff to celebrate the ongoing successes of preserving land forever. The Conservancy serves Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Manistee counties and has protected 77 miles of shoreline and over 31,000 acres of land.

This sounds like a great event! It is my family's hope to purchase property specifically for the nature conservancy.
