In event of cancellation due to ice conditions we will still host a Chicken Dinner and raffles in place of the contest on 2/16/19 from 5:00 pm -7:00 pm.


The Fowler Center for Outdoor Learning is a year-round, non-profit camp for children and adults with disabilities.  Each year we offer fundraisers and events open to the public in an effort to provide quality programming to individuals we serve.  For more information, visit our website at www.thefowlercenter.org

The annual Winter Free Fishing  Weekend was initiated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in 1994.  It’s an opportunity to allow Michigan’s citizens and tourists the chance to fish for free – without a fishing license.  Communities throughout the state are coordinating 2019 Winter Free Fishing.
