After months of steady progress, construction crews are currently busy checking off items needed to complete the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Outdoor Adventure Center prior to the installation of exhibits. 

Specialists are busy building the many Phase One exhibits that will be featured in the facility when it opens this fall.  Construction on additional exhibit phases will continue when the Center opens and funding is secured.  

When the Center officially opens to the public, visitors will experience the Michigan outdoors through these primary interpretive areas – Michigan Trails, The Detroit River and Beyond, Michigan Waters, Heritage Outdoor Sports, Outdoor Lodging, The Big Tree, Nature in My Neighborhood, Michigan’s Healthy Forests and The Dark Sky.  Interactive displays will teach people how to use a real bow and arrow, sit in a blind, use a simulator to hunt wildlife, experience the sights and senses associated with camping.
