This Land Is Your Land, Michigan

 The Nature Conservancy has long recognized the importance of America’s public lands. Americans look to our beloved landscape not only to support and enrich our lives, but also in overcoming times of crisis. From the Civil War to the Great Depression, America has turned to conservation to sustain and heal our nation.

  • The Nature Conservancy has purchased and transferred more than 52,000 acres to public lands in Michigan.
  • Michigan has the largest state park and state forest system in the country.
  • More than 22 million people annually visit Michigan, contributing $580 million to the state's economy.

Today, the Conservancy supports policy initiatives such as America’s Great Outdoors and urges a permanent commitment to the Land and Water Conservation Fund

Of course, the Conservancy also has a long history of working with local, state and federal entities to establish and expand popular and iconic places. While the sites below represent only a fraction of our projects in Michigan, we hope these highlights will inspire you to explore and protect our great outdoors.
