Bio

Sue Duval’s love of Walloon Lake stems from vacationing here with her parents in the 1940s and 50s. The Duvals wanted to protect this land from future development, and donated it. This preserve is part of a corridor of protected woodlands along Indian Garden Road, providing habitat and water quality protection for the watershed.
