Events - The Leelanau Conservancy


There’s no place like Leelanau. Find your Leelanau adventure at one of our 28 natural areas and preserves. A great way to learn more about the history and ecology of these hidden gems is to attend a guided hike, paddle or ski led by our experienced docents and staff. Click on an event below to learn more and sign up. Check back often; events are generally added a month in advance.

Docent Hikes by Request

Docent-led hikes have always been a great way to gain a deeper knowledge about Leelanau and the amazing nature around us, and this season we are offering small group Docent hikes by request. 

If your group is 8 or less people, of 1-2 households and you’re interested, please contact our Volunteer Manager, Lindy Kellogg [email protected] for arrangements. Please submit requests a minimum of 7 days’ notice. 

All attendees are requested to practicing proper social distancing, keeping a 6-foot distance from those not in your party, wear a mask, and do not attend if you have been exposed to a Covid positive person within 14 days of the scheduled hike. If local or state Covid risk is at an elevated level, the event may be reduced in size of attendees, canceled, or postponed.
