BENEFITING: NORTH WOODS CONSERVANCY
Seven Mile Point is a magical place on Lake Superior – a 1.1 billion year old bedrock point with nearly 2000 feet of gorgeous BIG Lake shoreline, a sand beach on one side, and a cobblestone beach on the other. It is perfect for viewing crashing waves and sunsets, picking agates, swimming, kayaking, talking with friends, or solitary reflection.
The crashing waves photo of Seven Mile Point on this page is the 1st place winner in North Wood Conservancy’s 2016 photo contest. The photographer, Dennis Hake, noted: “It is somewhat difficult to convey to others one's attraction to the ‘Lonesome Places’ on our planet. Perhaps it's a wish to harken back to an earlier, simpler time." We need such places today to help us regain our equilibrium. Seven Mile Point needs to be preserved for all of us, forever.
When the original grant to protect the Point from development unexpectedly fell through, the North Woods Conservancy obtained a mortgage to protect it. Each year since then, NWC has pulled together contributions from members (monthly sustainers plus yearly and special donations), outreach to the general public, and special fundraising efforts to meet this monthly obligation.
You can help NWC kick off its 2017 efforts to preserve this beautiful spot. Our goal is to raise $8000 before the end of February. Please make a donation today to help preserve Seven Mile Point. Then please invite your family and friends to join in also. Together we can protect Seven Mile Point.
The North Woods Conservancy is an all-volunteer group of people who together buy Natural Areas in the Keweenaw to keep them open for people and wildlife forever. It is a 501c3 non-profit, so donations are deductible. Thank you for your help. Do come visit Seven Mile Point sometime and personally experience how special it is.
