Committed to conservation since 1976

The Omena Woods Association began with a commitment to conserving the land back in 1976 when the concept of setting aside land for the future was just beginning to gain momentum in the United States.

Today the Omena Woods Association has preserved over one hundred acres of beautiful land thanks to our members.  Our conservation easement is monitored annually by the Leelanau Conservancy, which provides you with the assurance that the association board continues to manage this land for conservation.
