National Lakeshore To Celebrate National Public Lands Day

Sept. 18, 2018

Free entrance to the National Lakeshore and an opportunity to give back will mark National Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 22. In recognition of this special day, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore will offer visitors an opportunity to enjoy the park for free on Saturday; the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or use of concessions.
 
Those who are interested in giving back (and receiving something in return) are invited to a work bee on the Kettles Trail from 9am to 1pm. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot on Baatz Road, just west of Fritz Road. Participants should dress for the weather and bring water and sunscreen. National Park Rangers will provide all necessary tools and equipment. Participants in the volunteer event will also earn a coupon for an additional free one-day entrance pass to public lands any time before September 21, 2019.

Park fee collection stations will be open and have Annual Passes as well as Interagency Senior and Access Passes available. For more information, call 326-4700, extension 5010.
