New Formal Education Program


Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is in a transition with our education program. We are working to develop a formal education program where our activities connect to state standards and common core standards.

We welcome any comments/feedback about our program and suggestions for improvement. Please email Lisa Griebel, lead for the education and interpretation program at Sleeping Bear Dunes.
