Little Traverse Conservancy Acquires New Nature Preserve

Posted: Updated:

Little Traverse Conservancy just added another piece of land to it's list of protected properties.

The Hymas Woods Nature Preserve is a 149-acre preserve near Alanson, in Emmet County.

A family recently donated the property that's in the area of Banwell and Mission Roads.

The new preserve features a diversity of habitats, and is just one more way to enjoy the great northern Michigan outdoors.

Because the preserve is so new, the conservancy is still working to develop a parking area, and to put up signs.
