Welcome! 

Chikaming Open Lands is the local land conservancy dedicated to preserving the open spaces and natural rural character of southwest Berrien County.

We protect and restore native plant and animal habitat in the area, improve water quality in our rivers, streams and in Lake Michigan, and permanently preserve ecologically significant forests, prairies and wetlands, as well as prime farmland and other open spaces in this community.

 


Please join us!
STEWARDSHIP DAY AT GRAND BEACH MARSH
Saturday, July 19, 10:00 a.m. to Noon
 

 
We will begin building a trail at the Marsh, and will also do some plant identification as part of our ongoing Stewardship University stewardship training. Attendees of our May 17 Stew U session, bring your plant notebooks and some transparent tape. For those who did not attend the stewardship training and would like to begin assistant stewardship training, bring a 6" x 9" spiral bound notebook, a roll of clear tape and a pen or pencil to create a personal herbarium.  
 
We'll meet at the Marsh at 10:00 a.m. From New Buffalo, take US-12 southwest  for about 3 miles. Turn right on Grand Beach Road, cross the railroad tracks, and immediately turn right again. Head back northeast 0.8 miles and turn left on Deer Park Drive. We'll meet by our Preserve sign on Deer Park. 
 
If you have safety glasses or work gloves, please bring them, otherwise we have some we can provide. We recommend you wear long pants and closed shoes, as we will likely encounter poison ivy.

Please let us know if you plan to attend by contacting Ryan Postema  rpostema@chikamingopenlands.org or (269) 405-1006
