With the support of local landowners and the community, there would be lots of land across mid-Michigan left unprotected.
That's where the Little Forks Conservancy has stepped in to preserve local wildlife.
Greg Yankee, the executive director of the conservancy, talks to Joel Feick about how the organization got started, what it does throughout the community and how people can get involved and help the organization.
Yankee also explains how can people work on conservation at home and at work.
