    Bay City fitness freaks and nature lovers are soon to have a few new opportunities to crow about thanks to the Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy.

    Having protected more than 6,000 acres of land since its inception in 1997, the SBLC is now focusing on several projects that should draw the publics interest: cleaning up the Golson Nature Area near the Independence Bridge; building a new pavilion at Discovery Preserve on South Euclid Avenue; constructing a canoe and kayak launch at the Bay City Rowing Club and developing a mountain bike trail on Middlegrounds Island.
