ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Representatives of the state's tourism industry are participating this week in efforts to clean up Detroit's Belle Isle.

Organizers say more than 350 industry volunteers are expected Friday for the event at the island park in the Detroit River.

Michigan Cares for Tourism is a volunteer partnership. It's chartered by Grand Valley State University's Hospitality and Tourism Management Department, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Travel Michigan, Tourism Cares and Indian Trails.

In 2013, Michigan tourism industry volunteers participated in efforts to improve Waterloo Recreation Area's Mill Lake outdoor center.

Belle Isle in February became a state park, with the Department of Natural Resources taking over management as part of a cost-cutting effort for bankrupt Detroit. The cleanup is one of several this spring on the island.
