The Preserve is open for non-motorized use including hiking, bird watching, nature study as well as canoeing and kayaking. This easement protects 1,045 acres that have been recognized by the Michigan Natural features Inventory as the single most important coastal plain marsh remaining in the Upper Great Lakes region. The Preserve is biologically rich, with more than 300 species of plants, nesting sandhill cranes and bald eagles, ladyslipper orchids, carnivorous plants including sundews, bladderworts, and pitcher plants, and a high diversity of grasses and sedges. The intact estuarine marsh provides important habitats for fish and amphibians.

The Preserve is the result of the Keweenaw Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy, the Houghton/Keweenaw Conservation District (owners of the property), and the Michigan Coastal Management program working together to protect this vulnerable shoreline. The Preserve borders Bete Grise Bay and stretches for 1.5 miles from Lac La Belle to Point Isabelle.
