Join us as we celebrate the Michigan state parks centennial and National Kids to Parks Day. Get ideas for family-friendly outdoor fun offered by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and area organizations to encourage learning-through-adventure all summer long.
Come and “Touch the Trucks” where kids of all ages can get hands-on with the biggest equipment the DNR uses to maintain parks, stock fish, enforce laws, and fight fires.
The first 500 families participating will get a special-edition Centennial canvas tote provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. All are invited to participate in the Centennial Summer Fun Scavenger Hunt where you can get to know area outdoor organizations, get a selfie with Smokey Bear, try your hand at archery, casting, and so much more! For more information about this event, please call the park.
