The North Woods Conservancy is celebrating an addition to its holdings along the Gratiot River. With the help of a matching grant and lots of year-end donations, the organization was able to complete the purchase of 75 acres immediately to the southeast of its existing Conglomerate Falls holdings in Keweenaw County this week. The newly-purchased property includes 1,405 feet of river frontage. The organization hopes to obtain an additional 80 acres next summer, which would increase its Conglomerate Falls holdings to more than 275 acres, with 1.3 miles of river frontage. Land held by the Conservancy is open to the public for light use. You can find out more about the North Woods Conservancy and the land it controls here.
