A successful fundraising effort in 2000 resulted in the Conservancy’s purchase of this large, undeveloped waterfront property. The purchase closed the door on a controversial 34-unit subdivision proposed for the site. Now the preserve helps maintain

the water quality of Crooked Lake which lies near the upper portion of the Inland Waterway, a 40-mile navigable waterway
that boaters can take all the way into Lake Huron at Cheboygan.
