Thank you Fort Wilkins donors and volunteers!

Michigan Cares for Tourism would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make this event a success! Together, 62 donor organizations and 160 volunteers successfully completed 23 clean-up and restoration projects at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park. Projects ranged from painting historic structures and replacing Fort posts to enhancing the view by landscaping/brush removal and adding a roof and ADA ramp for accessibility. 

Our Mission

Michigan Cares for Tourism is a 100% volunteer, 100% give-back partnership between Michigan tourism organizations where we come together to help restore Michigan’s historic attractions, learn about a Michigan tourism destination, and network across our industry segments to ultimately enhance the visitor experience, and be more involved professionals.
