Volunteer Events

Michigan Cares for Tourism coordinates annual clean-up events throughout Michigan to preserve and protect our historic tourism sites. Our first event in Historic Mill Lake (Chelsea, Michigan at the Waterloo Recreation Area) welcomed 100 tourism industry volunteers to restore the area, resulting in 1400 hours of labor and $28,000 in manpower savings in a full day of effort restaining, removing debris and restoring the cabin structures.  The photos below share the rich history and current devastation. 

Our 2014 site is Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan.
