Join us lakeside to hear the voices of support for the future “Mary Lake Nature Park”
This sanctuary will protect a watershed, pristine forest and many species, while creating a new link for a 25 km hiking trail loop.
This land has been under conservancy ownership since 1947. That’s 70 years - Let’s make it forever!
