About This Tour

The Carl A. Gerstacker Preserve, on the northern shore of Lake Huron in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, was established in 1993 thanks to the generosity of Marilyn Twining and her family. They sold multiple parcels of land over the years to The Nature Conservancy to form the Little Trout Lake Preserve. The preserve was renamed in 1996 after Carl A. Gerstacker, a founding member of The Nature Conservancy’s Michigan Chapter Board of Trustees.

Today, the Gerstacker Preserve totals over 1600 acres in size, and features several miles of spectacular Lake Huron shoreline. Join me on this tour to learn some of the unique history that has shaped this preserve, as well as what The Nature Conservancy is doing to protect it and places like it.
