A Saginaw County couple is helping the Little Forks Conservancy protect a stretch of the Cedar River in Gladwin County from development.

The Midland-based nonprofit says Jim and Beth Wallace of Freeland signed a conservation easement that includes nearly a mile along one of the river's branches. Previously used for pasture, the 90-acre property was primarily open fields when the Wallaces bought it.

Following years of work, the property about 90 miles north of Lansing now is a wooded area. Beth Wallace describes it as "a beautiful place."

Jim Wallace says he wants the land to be a place for their grandchildren to play. He says: "The more you improve the land, the more you start thinking about the environment."
