We are a voluntary board and advisory group of community and partner representatives who have rolled up our sleeves to pursue a new vision for the former Timber Shores property that will benefit our community and the environment for generations to come.

In partnership with the current owner, we are raising funds to transfer ownership and pursue a new vision. We seek support from those who love Leelanau as much as we do.  Now is the time. Please join us!
