The Chippewa Watershed Conservancy (CWC) works to help individuals and families preserve the natural heritage of Mid-Michigan. We do so by placing conservation easements on private lands to assist landowners in protecting their lands from further development, and by accepting land donations or acquiring land through simple fee purchase. These protected lands create links establishing essential corridors for wildlife movement, and preserve the necessary food, shelter and territory they need to grow their populations and to thrive. By protecting entire ecosystems, wildlife develop the viability to adapt to changes to their landscapes over time.
We are land managers, working to preserve these habitats and often working to restore them. We create places where people can interact with nature, joyfully learning and respecting the process that takes place all around us. As a species, we are both the essential link to nature as well as its stewards.
You can find our preserves – 22 now – throughout Isabella, Gratiot, Montcalm, Mecosta and Clare Counties. See www.chippewawatershedconservancy.org/preserves.
However, to continue our work, we need your help. In providing both recreational and educational opportunities, the land base needed for essential habitat, and the gift of supporting private landowners in their own efforts to conserve land for wildlife, we need a stronger base of support.
Therefore, we are asking you to join us in support of a treasure that we all share. Let your patrons know that our natural heritage is a common cause. We will exhibit your support in our publications. We will let our mailing list know who you are and what you do. Most importantly, take pride in the fact that you support a worthy cause that provides outdoor educational and recreational opportunities, and supports private landowners – who may very well be future customers, if they are not already. Join us in positive work, important work. Now.
