PODCAST: Checking In On Belle Isle With Michele Hodges Of The Belle Isle Conservancy

Play episode

As we hit the fall season, we thought it appropriate to check in with Michele Hodges about Detroit’s beloved Belle Isle State Park. She heads the Belle Isle Conservancy, the non-profit devoted to supporting the park.

The non-profit is working to keep everything running on Belle Isle State Park, while dealing with the effects of decades of disinvestment and very old buildings.

A few of the things Sven Gustafson and Michele talk about include.. what the Conservancy actually does… the price tag for what it would take to properly fix up Belle Isle, as a lot of capital resources are being used to fix emergency repairs.… the new Piet Oudolf garden… if there are plans for the old zoo on the island… and more.
