Becoming A U.S. Citizen At Sleeping Bear

July 16, 2016

Candidates from numerous countries will become American citizens during a ceremony at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on Thursday, July 21. It is one of 100 ceremonies being held this year in national parks across the country to commemorate the National Park Service's Centennial and invite a new generation of Americans to national parks. The National Park Service and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have an official partnership that encourages both agencies to co-host naturalization ceremonies in these special places set aside for public enjoyment and historical commemoration.

“How fitting to take the oath of citizenship here at Sleeping Bear Dunes,” says Superintendent Scott Tucker. “National Parks are a uniquely American idea. It is an honor to welcome these new citizens here at the National Lakeshore.”

The ceremony will take place at 10am on at the Sleeping Bear Point U.S. Life-Saving Service Station, west of Glen Haven Historic Village. Park visitors need only purchase the park entrance pass or have an annual pass displayed in their vehicle to witness this moving ceremony. Passes may be purchased at the Philip A. Hart Visitor Center in Empire.
