In the news

Work is already well under way on the new five-acre site, where land owned by the University of Michigan is being cleared. Formerly part of the Matthaei Botanical Gardens adjacent to Cherry Hill Road, the spot will be leased by HSHV for 65 years under terms of a deal reached earlier this year. The Matthaei family also gave the shelter its current land, and had indicated a desire for the university to provide additional land should HSHV need to expand. Fred Matthaei, who helped plant some of the trees in that area decades ago, is expected to attend Tuesday’s ceremony.
