Make the Grand Forest Grander

Help Us Make Your Grand Forest Grander--For everyone. Forever.

Going deep in the woods:
the 10-acre Soutter Property

To those walking the existing east-west trail from Mandus Olson into the southwest Grand Forest, the parcel seems to be a part of the Grand Forest. It's not, but it needs to be. Otherwise, as many as four homes could be constructed deep in the woods.

The property contains wetlands, an intermittent stream, and dense forest--its flora and fauna mimicking that of the Grand Forest--while providing habitat for wildlife and great visual beauty for those walking along its borders.


Protecting Issei Creek: the 5-acre Croker Property

This parcel is part of the Issei Creek Watershed. An important fish stream flows from the Grand Forest through this property. On its way to Fletcher Bay, the stream corridor and surrounding wetlands provide habitat for birds, mammals, and aquatic life.

By purchasing this conservation land, we remove the potential of development within this fragile habitat and protect the southern edge of the Grand Forest--forever!


Expanding the Wildlife Corridor: the 15-acre Andreasen Property

This property preserves ecologically rich wetlands, vital habitat, a pond, and mixed forest while expanding the existing 20-acre Wildlife Corridor. The expansion will enable the Land Trust to connect the East Grand Forest with Meigs Park, thus moving forward the longer-term dream of a cross-island trail "from sea to shining sea."
