Little Traverse Conservancy acquired this 36 acre preserve from Dr. and Mrs. Robert Ziegler between 1990 and 1993. The property was given in part by the Zieglers and purchased in part by the Conservancy with money donated by Mullett lake residents and the Americana Foundation. Needle Point is an undisturbed forested wetland dominated by cedar, but also occupied by balsam fir, white spruce, and white birch. One of the most significant features of this preserve is that it orders Mullett lake. This preserve provides wildlife habitat, a scenic view from the road and the lake, and helps maintain the water quality of Mullett Lake.
