Maplecrest Preserve

Year Established



22 acres


The Maplecrest Preserve is the result of a generous donation in memory of Paul and Alberta Baitinger by their daughter Maria Lohrmann and husband Bob.
In September 2017, the Conservancy dedicated this preserve. Adjacent to the Church Family Preserve, this creates a larger corridor of protected lands along the high ridges between the Walloon Lake watershed and the Lake Charlevoix watershed. The hilly woodlands and red pine plantation create a nice spot for a quiet walk or picnic.
