Protecting Michigan Public Lands & Outdoor Recreation - Forever


Our outdoor spaces are a source of joy– these are the places we explore with our families, play with friends, we train, recreate, challenge ourselves and reconnect. The natural beauty of this state and the Great Lakes in and around it are an integral part of our communities. They keep us healthy, moving and economically vibrant.

Let's do the same for them!

Public lands and outdoor recreation have always been pillars in the lives of Michiganders, so much that we often take them for granted. We're building a crew of ambassadors to remind our friends and neighbors of the importance of these places and the opportunities they provide.
