Saturdays at the Lakeshore in May
Contact: Lisa Myers, 231-326-5134
Would you like to visit a beaver pond, smell spring wildflowers, search for morels, or identify migrating birds? Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is the place to do all that and more. Spring is an excellent time to hike and National Park Rangers are looking forward to sharing some of their favorite places in the National Lakeshore with you during five “Saturdays at the Lakeshore” in May.
Every Saturday afternoon at 1:00 p.m., a Park Ranger will await you at the Visitor Center in Empire on M-72 to introduce a topic and then lead a car caravan a short distance to where the walk will begin. Each week, a different topic and location in the park will be featured.
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. For more information or to make a reservation, please call 231-326-5134.
