Sandy Hansen Birding Trail in Muskegon: Anderson Woods donors create a special opportunity

Anderson Woods in Muskegon County

Coming 2015 to Anderson Woods Nature Preserve: The Sandy Hansen Birding Trail.

We recently announced that we reached our fundraising goal for the new Anderson Woods Nature Preserve in Muskegon County’s Fruitland Township. Community response to this project has been gratifying, helping us raise over $190,000 including lead donations and grants.

Thanks to everyone who contributed – your generosity will create something special.

 

Sandy Hansen Birding Trail in Muskegon

Anderson Woods is a beautiful forested property providing nesting and feeding habitat for a variety of resident and migratory songbirds. Later this spring we will begin development of the Sandy Hansen Birding Trail – an approximately two-mile double loop trail which will wind through the woods, providing plenty of bird watching opportunities and peaceful time in the woods.

Funded by a gift from the Hansen Family Foundation, one loop of the trail will be wheelchair and stroller accessible. Opportunities are limited for those with disabilities to get out into natural settings. This will be the first accessible trail system on a Land Conservancy nature preserve.

Watch for information about a public dedication in August.

Thanks to all of you who helped make this possible!
