The fair will include exhibitors from the Belle Isle Conservancy, Belle Isle Nature Center, Michigan Department of Natural Resources Outdoor Adventure Center, Detroit Audubon, Detroit Outdoors, Detroit River Canadian Cleanup, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. , Michigan Department of Environment Great Lakes and Energy, Michigan Sea Grant, US Coast Guard Auxiliary, Wayne County Department of Public Services, and We’re Fixin’ to Fish.

Thanks to a partnership with the Detroit Historical Society, the normal daily fee to visit the Doosin Museum will be waived. Everyone is welcome to participate in a winter celebration of our natural resources.
