Grosse Ile Nature and Land Conservancy

The Grosse Ile and Nature Land Conservancy works to achieve its goal of protecting land through land acquisition, conservation easements and educational projects.

Through gift or purchase, we secure ownership of natural land needed to protect our areas beauty and fragile habitats. The Conservancy also seeks grants of conservation easements from private landowners. This type of deed restriction allows owners to use their land and pass it on to future generations while enjoying certain tax benefits.

Our philosophy is to work quietly, wisely, scientifically and imaginatively.

The Conservancy is an independent, 501C3, non-profit organization incorporated under the Michigan Department of Commerce and with no affiliation or obligation to any other organization. We were formed in 1993 and are governed by an unpaid Board of Directors elected by our membership at our annual meeting. Our financial support comes entirely from voluntary contributions from community residents. Our tax-exempt status forbids any political activity unless our stated mission is in jeopardy. It also provides for tax deductions for all contributed money, materials, and land and conservation easements.

We are the only private organization in the Township of Grosse Ile that can legally protect property either by direct ownership of land or by holding conservation easements on it. In turn, we are legally obligated to manage our properties with best land management practices that are balanced by public benefit.
