Jane Gale - The Leelanau Conservancy

Jane Gale - Docent

As a child, I enjoyed camping both as a Girl Scout and with my family, mostly at State Parks across Michigan.  I was introduced to Leelanau by family friends who were summer residents and felt I had found a home.  After decades away, I returned on a part time basis in 2012 and quickly joined the Conservancy.  Docent led hikes were my first introduction to the Natural Areas I have grown to love.  I chose to become a docent in part to challenge myself to learn more about the geology, plants and animals that make this peninsula unique.  I am retired from a career in healthcare and now live year round in Northport.  Volunteering for the Conservancy as a docent and on numerous workbees has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people on the planet.  I look forward to meeting others who love and respect the land we inhabit on future hikes and at other events.

The Leelanau Conservancy depends on the guidance of valued supporters to fulfill our mission and to evolve. We invite you to participate in a 10-12 minute online survey.
