Ice Caves No Longer Safe
The ice formations in Leelanau Township, north of the park, are no longer safe to visit. High winds have fractured the ice, moving it to the west. Huge cracks have formed in the cave arches, making them very unsafe and open water is now visible.
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.
