About This Tour

The Ross Coastal Plain Marsh Preserve is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, which works around the globe to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Here in Michigan, this includes the coastline of Eastern Lake Michigan. This coastline is a globally unique system of freshwater dunes and important wildlife habitat that spans over 500 miles, from Indiana to the Mackinac Bridge.

The Ross Preserve is part of this coastal system. It was established in 1988 thanks to a generous gift from Martha Parfet. This place was one of many that was special to her, and I hope that by the end of your visit it will be clear why. Join us 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.
