The partners in this effort include the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Brain Injury Association, the Passing Along The Heritage (PATH) Foundation, the Eisenhower Center, Safari Club International (SCI) Foundation, Michigan Building and Construction Trades Council, Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), American Legion, and others.
