Southwest Michigan Seek
Help us fight detecting restrictions in Michigan
The Southwest Michigan Seek and Search Club and all detectorists in Michigan need help fighting the recent increased restrictions on detecting in our State Parks. Please help us by joining in on the fight.
We have learned that a legislative email flood from detectorists only anger the legislators making them resistant to helping us. However, links to representatives are included for those who wish to contact them.
Because of the legislative resistance, our goal is to use the money talks approach. We need to contact hotels, coffee houses, restaurants, and other establishments that survive on tourism in areas that the State Parks have restrictions. Please let them know you have been considering a vacation in their area but due to the restrictions on detecting in the nearby State Parks you will be going elsewhere. If they get enough of these messages, they will start making noise to their local Chamber of Commerce and the news will be pushed up to the legislators. Again Money Talks!!!
Below you will find helpful links. A park restrictions map with all the State Parks marked color coded by restrictions, each county is a clickable hotlink that will take you to a list of the Chambers of Commerce for that county. The Chamber links have links to local commercial establishments. Many of these establishments have either email links or web pages you can use to contact them.
There are also links for State Parks by county and a list of State Park's and the regulations for each park. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
