Glen Haven is in need of volunteers, and being a VIP is an awesome opportunity to share your passion for Sleeping Bear Dunes with others, from teaching visitors about the Maritime history of the Lakeshore to giving real-life blacksmith demonstrations!
More than 1,800 people annually make the time to give something back to this American treasure. Depending on the opportunity, volunteers may donate several months at a time or perhaps a few hours. Put your skills to work in this beautiful setting, and meet many other fine people who have similar interests.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in, contact our volunteer coordinator, Matt Mohrman or call 231-326-4729. He will match your interests, skills, and time availability with the wide variety of volunteer projects available.
