Greenwood Foundation is a private operating foundation with the mission to conserve the natural state of the land, protect the wildlife, and allow for the education and study of nature in its pristine state.

Greenwood Foundation is located in Nunda Township, near Interstate 75 about 20 miles north of Gaylord.  The Greenwood Wildlife Sanctuary has over 1700 acres of woodlands, wetlands, three lakes, with over two miles on the Little Pigeon River, as well as a small creek, all with a wealth of aquatic animals. The property has a great variety of birds, including eagles, hawks, owls, and geese, and animals like the otter, beaver, black bear, raccoon, deer, elk and many others.

 Greenwood Wildlife Sanctuary allows for group events throughout the year.  Some of these educational events include skiing, snow shoeing, and hiking. Groups who organize events at Greenwood include the Little Traverse Conservancy, Petoskey Friendship Center, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and various other nature groups.

Groups interested in scheduling an event should contact Muffie McCauley at 231-525-8660 or email (
