Aug 16, 2013

LANSING, MI (AP)--   The Michigan Department of Natural Resources wants to establish partnerships for outdoor recreation programs next year.  

Opportunities range from volunteering as an instructor for various statewide campaigns to donating to projects.

Parks and recreation chief Ron Olson says the goal is to develop relationships that are good for parks, visitors and businesses.

Volunteers at state parks can work with programs such as Recreation 101, which offers free, introductory classes with gear and expert instruction provided. The new Fresh Air Fit program is seeking instructors who would like to offer group fitness programs outside.
