2018 - Belle Isle Clean-Up and Aquarium Visit
We are partnering with the Belle Isle Conservatory to help remove trash from Belle Isle. Participants will travel via bus from the convention center to Belle Isle. We will collect trash for a few hours before taking a tour of the Belle Isle Aquarium.
Belle Isle is a 2.5-mile long island located in the international waters of the Detroit River, operated by Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Belle Isle is considered the "Jewel of Detroit" due to its natural resources and historical landmarks. Woodsy forests, lagoons, and wetlands encompass over a third of the island, providing a sanctuary for wildlife and opportunities for nature enthusiasts in this urban oasis. The Belle Isle Aquarium, the oldest aquarium in the country, houses an impressive collection of Great Lakes fishes and the only aquarium to house all seven species of gar found in North America.
Cost: $20 each
