The Great Outdoors is Yours to Explore

Michigan’s vast natural resources offer plentiful options for outdoor enjoyment. Our more than 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, 11,000 inland lakes, tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams and nearly 20 million acres of forest land provide opportunities for just about every interest. A lot of hard work goes into scientifically managing our waters, forests and wildlife to ensure that we, and our future generations, can continue to enjoy them. So, whether you’re a novice canoeist, an expert snowshoer, a weekend bird-watcher or a frequent fisherman, we invite you to learn more about how Michigan’s long and successful history of conservation makes your passion possible.
