Friends of the Outdoor Adventure Center

Friends of the Outdoor Adventure Center Board of Directors:

  • Harvey “Chip” Amoe – Director of Sustainability, Henry Ford Health System
  • Angela Ayers – Government Policy Initiatives Manager, Ford Motor Company

Their first project at the Outdoor Adventure Center will be our long-awaited Donor Wall. Exhibits and special events at the OAC rely on additional funding provided by donors, and this wall will be a magnificent way to spotlight our team of donors.

This year is the fifth anniversary of the Michigan DNR Outdoor Adventure Center, and the installation of the Donor Wall is the fledgling Friends group’s very first contribution.

Would you like to join our Friends Group? We are looking for members to help create meaningful exhibits and programs that “Inspire, Educate and Connect” our guests to Michigan’s natural, cultural and historic resources.
