Ross Preserve Tour

The Nature Conservancy has invited everyone to join this year’s Fall Treasure Hunt on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 9-11 a.m. at the Ross Coastal Plain Marsh Preserve, just south of South Haven.

Take a tour with Conservancy staff to learn the unique history of the Preserve as well as the habitats and species that live here. Expert scientists will explain how the Conservancy is working with partners to restore and protect Michigan’s iconic forests and dunes.

The tour also includes an introduction to geocaching—with a special cache to find on the preserve! People who visit the preserve may hike more than five miles of trails where you may see animals like the red fox, more than 100 different types of birds and rare plants living between the forest, ponds and wetlands.

This event is free and family friendly. Spots are limited. RSVP is required by calling Mary Louks at 517-316-2260 or by email to by October 11.

Registered participants will meet at the south side entrance on 44th Ave./Co. Rd. 376 in Coloma. Visitors may park in the lot and along the side of the road. The Dune Lake Campground is located directly across the street at 80855 Co. Rd. 376.
