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. This transition involves some changes in programs offered, schedule of ranger-led hikes, pre-visit, and post-visit activities, etc.

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.
