Offering family nature programs on the weekend and nature-based (Michigan flora and fauna) education programs to schools and community groups during the week. Twenty-five fallow deer that once roamed the island now enjoy a one-acre enclosure and barn at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo. The habitat is part of a multi-phase project to convert the former nature center on Belle Isle into a Nature Zoo focusing on Michigan wildlife, flora and fauna.
