Michigan has a long and proud history of conservation and outdoor recreation leadership. Recently, Michigan joined an elite collection of 13 states that have committed to partnering with the outdoor recreation industry, through the creation of a dedicated Outdoor Recreation Industry Office, with the goal of partnering more closely with the outdoor recreation and lifestyle businesses that call Michigan home — to better support outdoor businesses, attract a talented workforce, and connect communities to their natural assets. Perhaps most importantly, though is to utilize this office and the network to help get more people from all walks of life, particularly children, outside.
