2016 Friends Picnic and Auction

Thanks to everyone who attended our Picnic on Thursday, August 4th, 2016 at the Kalchik-Newton Farm

Below is info that you still might find interesting until next year’s Picnic info is posted.

There’s No Place Like Leelanau! We’re looking forward to another great event, where Leelanau Conservancy friends gather to celebrate all we have done together to preserve this spectacular peninsula. As always, there will be a Kids Tent, pre-picnic hikes, local-foods focused meal and a silent auction with lots of fantastic, “can’t buy it” experiences. New this year:
