Wilderness is Minnie’s very special treat to us. Here the bend in the river complements the arc of the sun, lighting up the gorge at sunrise and sunset.  Within this beautiful natural setting – less is more.

About Minnie's Island & MICC

Minnie’s Island, in the Potomac River near Cabin John, Maryland... eight acres of boulders, trees, plants, and wildlife.  At one end of the island sits a wooden cabin with a large deck.

The Minnie’s Island Community Conservancy (MICC) is dedicated to the preservation of the ecological, architectural, scientific, and humanist legacy of the island.

MICC has been approved by the IRS as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  With this approval, your charitable contribution is tax-deductible.  We rely on donations to fund our operations. Please donate if you would like to help.

MICC relies on volunteers to maintain and promote stewardship of the island.

Ongoing work on the island by MICC is focusing on trail clearance, accessibility, and improvement of the safety and security of the cabin.

Assessment of the island's ecological communities and species composition is underway.  A program for managing invasive species is being established.

MICC has been approved by the IRS as an IRC Section 501 (c)(3) charitable organization.  Donations to MICC are now officially tax deductible.
