Plan a trip to these special destinations, and find rare beauty at some of the finest wilderness preserves and nature centers in the country. Michigan's state and national parks are renowned for their splendor; similarly, and equally stunning, the wilderness preserves and nature centers of the Great Lakes State beckon with adventure and beauty. This book by Michigan native Matt Forster is your introduction to 54 natural and scenic locales--and why you should visit each one. Discover hidden gems that most visitors, even residents, might not know about, with full-color photographs, highlights, and neat-to-know details about each site. There are even programs for children and field trip opportunities. The sites are organized by region, providing a good introduction to Michigan's geography and ecosystems. So learn about and enjoy the protected, peaceful, and pure outdoor wonders of Michigan. You'll like what you find here.

A native of Michigan, Matt Forster has lived in the Midwest, New England, and the Rocky Mountain regions of the country. This experience has contributed much to the other books he's written so far: Best Tent Camping: Michigan, Backroads & Byways of Michigan, Best Hikes Near Detroit and Ann Arbor, Backroads & Byways of Ohio, and Explorer's Guide Colorado. When he explores Michigan, he travels with his wife and their two children. This has created some great opportunities to learn how to best camp, hike, and discover nature with kids. The family currently lives in a restored nineteenth-century schoolhouse on a small lot that backs up to one of Oakland County's largest parks, with a fine nature center just 520 yards (as the heron flies) from his desk.
