We love Michigan’s great outdoors. With our pristine waters, forests and abundant wildlife, there’s something for everyone. We are fortunate that dedicated men and women across the state work hard to conserve and protect our natural resources so that future generations can enjoy our great state. The majority of funding for these conservation efforts is funded by revenue generated from hunting and fishing licenses, so while you may not hunt or fish, you may have benefited from this critical work.
