Whether you are a new or frequent visitor, spring is an excellent time to enjoy Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. You can detect glacial remains; observe migratory waterfowl; discover the history of hidden farms. Join a Park Ranger as they share some of their favorite places to enjoy spring during Saturdays at the Lakeshore in April.
Every Saturday afternoon at 1:00 p.m., a Park Ranger awaits you at the Visitor Center in Empire off of M-72 to introduce a topic and then lead a car caravan a short distance to where the walk will begin. Each week features a different topic and location.
Participants need only purchase the park entrance pass or have an annual pass to join in the fun. Reservations are not required, but are suggested if you wish to bring a group. Please call 231-326-5134, extension 328, for details.
