Celebrating Belle Isle Conservancy’s 10th Anniversary!

This celebration will highlight the Conservancy’s $16M impact to Belle Isle over the last decade, including our work in education that exposes thousands of Detroit Public Schools Community District students each year to the possibilities of STEM education at Belle Isle, as a partner
of the DPSCD Cultural Passport Program.

Funds raised at Polish the Jewel support the Conservancy’s operations and funding for the development of its programs, including restoring and enhancing the historic Belle Isle Aquarium and providing free admission to the public, managing over 1,000 volunteers, hosting over 3,000 local students on field trips to the Aquarium and Conservatory, advocating for Belle Isle improvements and park user interests, and fundraising for capital projects.
