Walk the Island Preserves

“Enjoy the warm holiday weather and walk our island preserves!”

Lake Erie ConservationWhat a great reminder from Lisa Brohl, Chair of the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy.

If you have time, visit the Coopers Woods area that the Conservancy is working to purchase this year–hopefully in early 2020!  As part of the requirements for one of their grants, LEIC needs cans, bottles and other garbage removed from the Woods. Send LEIC photos of your work, if you do go out and help with this effort.
