Jane Gale - The Leelanau Conservancy

Jane Gale - Docent

As a child, I enjoyed camping both as a Girl Scout and with my family, mostly at State Parks across Michigan.  I was introduced to Leelanau by family friends who were summer residents and felt I had found a home.  After decades away, I returned on a part time basis in 2012 and quickly joined the Conservancy.  Docent led hikes were my first introduction to the Natural Areas I have grown to love.  I chose to become a docent in part to challenge myself to learn more about the geology, plants and animals that make this peninsula unique.  I am retired from a career in healthcare and now live year round in Northport.  Volunteering for the Conservancy as a docent and on numerous workbees has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people on the planet.  I look forward to meeting others who love and respect the land we inhabit on future hikes and at other events.
