Rabbit Island is 91 acres of forest and sandstone located in Lake Superior—the largest body of freshwater in the world—four miles east of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula within the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe. The island is composed of a native ecosystem and has never before been developed or subdivided. It is a unique wilderness environment home to a variety of flora and fauna including large white pines, red maples, bald eagles, nesting birds, salamanders, and much more. A number of fish including salmon and native lake trout swim in the waters surrounding the island. The weather is ever-present and can vary day-to-day, creating beautiful vistas and humbling experiences.

A conservation easement assures the ecosystem will remain healthy in perpetuity. The island serves as a platform for contemporary art, science, and conservation.

The Rabbit Island Foundation is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3). The Board of Directors are David Gorski, Rob Gorski, and Andrew Ranville.
