About This Tour


The Echo Lake Preserve, in Marquette County, Michigan, is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy. The Nature Conservancy works worldwide to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
The Echo Lake Preserve is about 20 minutes northwest of Marquette, Michigan, near the shore of Lake Superior. Visitors year-round can enjoy outdoor activities from snowshoeing in from the highway in the winter to hiking and carry-in canoeing in the summer. Early May and late July through October are the best times to visit this preserve to take advantage of Upper Michigan’s beauty while avoiding biting insects—if you come in the midsummer months, be sure to bring insect repellent and protective gear.
Now, join me on this tour to learn some of the unique history that has shaped this preserve, as well as what The Nature Conservancy is doing to protect it and places like it.
