The Great Lakes
Circle Tour leads you around the largest freshwater system on the
planet - but the main route often takes you far from the water's
edge. This site shows you where to pull off the highway for a quiet
beach, a hidden lighthouse, or a secluded park.
Lakes Forest Project
The Conservancy along with the State of Michigan
and The Forestland Group, LLC has created the largest conservation
corridor in the Midwest by connecting 2.5 million acres. The project
prevents land fragmentation and incompatible development by
establishing buffers around major sites such as Pictured Rocks
National Lakeshore and Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
