Saturday Special programs on October 22 and 29. Sleeping Bear Inn tours and an avian botulism beach walk highlight the next two Saturdays at the National Lakeshore.

When traveling as a family, what types of lodging options do you prefer? Hotels? Motels? Bed & Breakfasts? Well, if you were to travel to Glen Haven 100 years ago and planned on sleeping there overnight, you would have stayed at the Sleeping Bear Inn. Join a ranger at the historic Sleeping Bear Inn at 12:oo p.m., October 22 and 29, for a 45-minute tour of the various rooms. See where D. H. Day resided and oversaw his town as you marvel at the craftsmanship of the hand-hewn timbers that give strength and stability to the historic building. And be sure to bring an imagination!

On Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m., you can take a stroll down the beach and help a ranger collect data for use in the ongoing study of avian botulism within the National Lakeshore. Meet at the platform at the cannery beach in Glen Haven. Dress for the weather and plan to walk about one mile.

All ranger program events are free with a park pass. For a listing of future events, check the park’s events calendar.
