Fishery workshops are located regionally in Lake Huron, Southeast (Lake Erie, Detroit River, Lake Saint Clair), Southern Lake Michigan, and Lake Superior. Please see the website below for current offerings.
All April 2020 in-person Lake Huron Fishery Workshops are canceled. We are exploring new online delivery opportunities for future fisheries education programs – stay tuned!
The annual Great Lakes Fisheries Workshops bring communities together with fisheries research and management partners to discuss research findings, management updates and fishing trends. Fisheries and natural resource managers provide big picture context to what’s happening in the lakes and how it will affect fish populations for recreational, commercial and sustenance fishers.

The six sessions will be taught in both indoor and outdoor settings. The indoor sessions will take place at the Pigeon River Country Discovery Center, near Vanderbilt, MI (20 miles NE from Gaylord). The outdoor sessions will take place in various locations around the Pigeon River Country State Forest.
Participants in the “Michigan Master Naturalist” program will gain a greater understanding of the natural environment and conservation techniques while learning the flora native to Michigan. Throughout the six-session program, local volunteer opportunities may become apparent. Participants can take an active role in implementing what they have learned throughout their neighborhoods and in their own backyards.
