We couldn’t be more excited about our collaboration with LOVELAND and WhyDontWeOwnThis.com. Imagine if Kickstarter, The Nature Conservancy, and Google Maps had a baby. We will use the graphic mapping technology that LOVELAND has developed in urban Detroit to crowdsource conservation in northern Michigan. Our beta test will evolve amidst the forested lands of the Keweenaw Peninsula, four miles west of Rabbit Island.
On the island we think a lot about wilderness in the context of art, civilization and sustainability. In Detroit LOVELAND is thinking hard about how to make land-based change happen in ways never before possible. We can’t wait to see what happens.
