Gull Harbor Natural Area

The Gull Harbor Natural Area was made possible by a consortium of grants and supporters:  St. James Township, Central Michigan University Biological Station and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Coastal Management Program.

The Preserve is a coastal wetland that is accessed via the Gull Harbor Road (locally known as Car Wash Road) between Whiskey Point and Sucker Point.  Trails and seating areas are in place while the landscape is constantly changing due to Lake Michigan flux of high/low water levels along this coastal shoreline.  Signage is down due to high water but is located east of the Little Traverse Bay Conservation Area on Gull Harbor Road.
