Join us for our annual New Year’s Day Hike! This year we will be hiking the John Woollam Trail in Saugatuck. The trail’s namesake, John Woollam, has been a long-time supporter of the Land Conservancy of West Michigan and many conservation efforts throughout the Great Lakes region. The hike will take us through the Dunegrass conservation easement, which the Land Conservancy helped protect in 2015, as well as the Mount Baldhead and Oval Beach parks. These properties are part of a natural greenway of protected lands, providing critical forested shoreline habitat for migratory birds and butterflies.
We will meet at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot at Mount Baldhead Park. The moderate hike is 2.5 miles round trip and will take us on a footpath through beautiful forested dunes and out to the Lake Michigan shoreline. Trail conditions will depend on the weather, so please check the forecast before you come and prepare appropriately!
Please register to attend the hike below. We hope you’ll join us in ringing in the New Year!
