Lou Ricord - The Leelanau Conservancy

Lou Ricord - Docent

It’s a treat escorting Leelanau Conservancy members and guests on their visits to our properties. We discover something new on each hike. Isn’t the Leelanau Conservancy doing a fantastic job to conserve the area’s scenic beauty?! My family and I moved to Empire in 2007. Like many of you, we discovered Leelanau during vacations to the Glen Lake area. Year after year we found more and more to do and needed more and more time to do it. After I retired from teaching at the Ohio State University it took no time to reflect on where to relocate. Hope to see you on the hikes!

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.
