Sutherland Nature Sanctuary

South of Lapeer there is a great spot for walks, hikes, bird watching, photographing, painting, reading and spending time in the quit woods. When you want to take a nature walk, or any number of other activities, consider Sutherland Nature Sanctuary. It is located on Deihl Rd., South of Pratt Rd., (North of Crampton).  Just a short ride south of Lapeer.

There are no fancy facilities, but there are many things to see. One feature is a pavilion with picnic tables, so take a snack or lunch. The trails are well defined, but it is not difficult to get turned around, so make sure you grab a tail-map prior to venturing off. This is a public location with no entrance fee.

A group of photographers recently put together a Photo-Album for Doris Sutherland who donated the property many years ago, and still visits on special occasions. Here is a link to the scrapbook if you’d like to look through it and see some photos captured there.
