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

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.

Check out this awesome Before/During/After photo of the playground #MC4T volunteers helped build at our event last month! The top green and white surfacing went down earlier this week, and once that cures, it's ready for kids to play on!
