Michigan Cares for Tourism is thrilled to announce our 2020 multi-day volunteer event location... we're going to the thumb!

Sleeper State Park offers both sunrises and sunsets on the bay, a modern campground and trails along the ancient dune forests. Port Crescent State Park is home to three miles of sandy shoreline, a dark sky preserve, a modern campground, trails and much more.

Thank you Leelanau State Park donors and volunteers!

Michigan Cares for Tourism would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make this event a success! Together, more than 50 donor organizations and 300 volunteers successfully completed 24 clean-up and restoration projects at Leelanau State Park / Grand Traverse Lighthouse. Projects included painting the historic lighthouse and surrounding structures, building a brand new playground, making the hiking trails more accessible, and many more.  

Our Mission
