Cadillac Area Land Conservancy

It is the Cadillac Area Land Conservancy's mission to promote and educate the residents of the four county area of Wexford, Osceola, Missaukee, and Lake Counties as to the benefits of preserving open spaces in behalf of the entire community. We offer our services to identify lands, with significant natural resources, in those areas and to acquire conservation easements and fee simple donations of that land. CALC will provide the responsible stewardship for all holdings and assure all restrictions remain in place in perpetuity on behalf of the donor and the community.

The Cadillac Area Land Conservancy (CALC) can offer invaluable assistance in your effort to protect your land. The hallmark of the Conservancy is that we listen to landowners and help them devise the best way to keep their land open.

Our land protection volunteers offer the expertise and commitment to provide sound information and assurance of long-term land protection. CALC will work closely and confidentially with you as you make decisions for your land, and the Conservancy will be there to ensure the land is protected long after the project is completed.

The Conservancy's approach is strictly voluntary: we work with willing landowners who share our conservation goals.

What is the Cadillac Area Land Conservancy?

The Cadillac Area Land Conservancy is a private, nonprofit corporation. Our mission is simple and straightforward: we protect significant natural, scenic, and farm and woodlands — now and for all future generations.

We protect land by accepting donations of land or conservation easements. In some special cases when funding is available, we may buy land or certain rights in land. We work on preserving land in Lake, Osceola, Missaukee and Wexford counties.

  • We listen to your goals for your land and help match these with protection opportunities.
