McCune Preserve Hiking Tour with Brad Von Blon

Brad will discuss the moss and lichens during a hike of this beautiful property which was donated to the Little Traverse Conservancy in 1984 by Allan and Virginia McCune of Petoskey. The spring-fed Minnehaha Creek, which provides fish and wildlife habitat, flows through the preserve on its way to Crooked Lake. The trails were dedicated to Allan Purchis, whose family homesteaded the land. In addition to the preserve was donated by the Purchis family in 2017. A replacement footbridge was constructed in 1997 across the creek's east branch with funds from the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation in memory of Ellen Pray Bondy. A second footbridge and parking area were constructed in 2015 with another community foundation grant and significant volunteer support from the Petoskey Home Builder's Association and in memory of Sandy Wagar. Limit of 15 participants.
