Lake Erie Islands Conservancy highlights the recent successful fundraiser for the Duff Homestead and Bayfront Preserve in the summer edition of the Island Green Scene newsletter. Lisa Brohl, Chair of the Conservancy, reports:
The Put-in-Bay Township Park District will be closing on the two-acre woods first and then the remaining 4.5 acres of buildings, field, and lakefront in the next few months. Financial assistance for the project has come from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund, the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy, the Park District of Ottawa County, the Julene M. Market Fund, and other sources.
The newsletter also presents foundation and grants news, pollinator project information, Arbor Day success, Middle Bass Island Music Festival plans, and the unique GREEN WEEK activities scheduled for August.
