Belle Isle Conservancy Update: September 2013


Our September meeting speaker was Michelle Hodge, president of Belle Isle Conservancy. Her topic was “Belle Isle: an Update”. Michelle discussed the history and future for Belle Isle, one of Detroit’s “jewels”.

The Belle Isle Conservancy was formed in the fall of 2011, through a merger of four existing nonprofits – Friends of Belle Isle, Belle Isle Botanical Society, Belle Isle Woman’s Committee and Friends of the Belle Isle Aquarium — the new Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Detroit, is working to bring more private and public resources to our beautiful island park.
