Gaylord's HeadWaters Land Conservancy broadcast on PBS's Michigan Magazine Television starts this week. The two part series explains conservation easements (and the misconception that they require public access) and features a 450-acre property we recently protected in Presque Isle County along with landowner interviews. Please see details and broadcast schedule below (please scroll down page) and please share with your staff and anyone who may be interested in learning more about land conservancies or land protection.  

HeadWaters Land Conservancy to be Featured on PBS


HeadWaters Land Conservancy helps private landowners in the large landscape region of northeast Lower Michigan preserve their land. This area contains many of the largest parcels of land left in the Lower Peninsula. This November, with the help of the popular Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television show, Michigan Magazine, more potential supporters and landowners will be aware of HeadWaters Land Conservancy‚s important work. „The large tracts of land, hunt clubs and world-class fly fishing rivers in northeast Lower Michigan are irreplaceable treasures. Through Michigan Magazine Television we have a means to reach a wider audience of potential members to help us preserve more large tracts,š said the Conservancy‚s Director of Development Kirt Manecke.


Part One of the show will air on this popular Public Broadcasting Service show on Saturday, November 15 and/or Wednesday, November 19, depending on your location. Part Two will air on Saturday, November 22 and/or Wednesday, November 26.
