New mapping tool for local outdoor recreation

As more sectors of Michigan’s economy cautiously begin to reopen for business, state health officials urge the public to continue following guidelines that help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

That means keeping social gatherings to no more than 10 people, limiting extensive travel and practicing social distancing — even when spending time outside.

In case you missed it, the DNR recently announced a new online map that helps people find boating, fishing, hiking and other outdoor recreation opportunities close to home.

The Your Local Outdoors website, available at https://tinyurl.com/y7mteg62, is an easy-to-explore collection of state-managed outdoor recreation destinations: state parks, trails, boat launches and family-friendly fishing waters. Just enter your ZIP code and see all of the options that are just minutes away!
