Michigan DNR Summer Program Benefits Urban Youths

Paul Bohn, Esq.

Although Michigan has a ton of beautiful recreational land, not all Michiganders have had the chance to experience it. The most logical reason is that a lot of that land is located in northern Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is attempting to diversify the user base of these parks by offering a summer program for urban youths. This program, the Detroit-area Youth Conservation Academy, enables children who are not normally exposed to outdoor recreational activities the chance to participate in events such as fishing, hiking, and camping.

What happens to your debt after death?
