Leo Creek Preserve


Leo Creek Preserve

An outdoor learning laboratory, nature preserve and botanical garden in Suttons Bay, Michigan


The mission of Leo Creek Preserve is to use its unique creek, forest, and agricultural spaces to provide, for all people, an outdoor learning laboratory to investigate water and woodland ecology, intensive soil regenerating and carbon sequestration practices, and to bring art into the garden gathering spaces. We value strengthening our connection to the natural world and bringing people together to work towards a beautiful, healthy, productive and regenerating environment, and sharing its abundance.
