Michigan Poised to Promote Outdoor Recreation, Joins “Confluence of States”
Michigan, stepping it up when it comes to making the most of the natural beauty that surrounds it.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Michigan is joining a national group of non-profits, businesses and governments — geared to promote outdoor recreation.
The Confluence of States emphasizes not only the public health pluses of spending time outside, but also the economic and social impacts.
In Michigan, tourism dollars spent on outdoor activities are key.
As a first move, the state will establish an office of outdoor recreation and form a council to run it.
