AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited the DNR’s Outdoor Adventure Center in Detroit. The O.A.C. gives you a taste of Michigan’s great outdoors in the heart of the city. Experience exciting outdoor adventures with hands-on activities, exhibits and simulators — walk behind and touch a waterfall, step into a fishing boat and reel in a big fish, hit the trail on a mountain bike or snowmobile, and much more. At the O.A.C., you’ll learn about how the DNR manages state parks, forests, wildlife and fish as you climb the roots and explore the canopy of a massive bur oak tree, hop aboard a real airplane, and see what’s swimming in our aquarium.
The DNR’s Outdoor Adventure Center is located at 1801 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48207. Tickets are $5 for Adults (13-61), $3 for seniors (62+), $3 for children (2-12) and free for children under age 2.
