To accommodate an all-volunteer Michigan Cares for Tourism workforce, portions of Bond Falls Scenic Site in Ontonagon County will be closed Sept. 13-14.

The parking area, boardwalk and trail will be closed Monday, Sept. 13, at 4 p.m. through Tuesday, Sept. 14, at 5 p.m. for maintenance and repairs.

Approximately 30 tourism industry volunteers will work together with park staff to perform critical repairs to the decking on the boardwalk and bridges that provide access to view the falls. Volunteers also will assist with trail brushing and painting.

"We are honored that MC4T volunteers will be dedicating their valuable time and efforts at Bond Falls," said Dan Dowdy, Baraga State Park supervisor, who also administers the Bond Falls Scenic Site. "The work accomplished here will ensure that we continue to provide high-quality, accessible recreation at one of the largest and most picturesque waterfalls in the western Upper Peninsula."

MC4T is a 100% volunteer organization that brings the tourism industry together to donate time, resources and energy to help restore the state's historic, cultural and natural attractions. This year, volunteers are breaking into smaller groups to tackle restoration and repair work at 10 different sites, including Bond Falls. Learn more at
