2019 Leelanau State Park & Grand Traverse Lighthouse Clean-Up Event


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 lighthouse, a new playground build, clearing brush and invasive species throughout the park and on the Winter Recreation Trail, installing ADA posts, painting and staining other buildings, as well as restoring a brick walkway.
