Travel Back to the Age of Glaciers at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

It’s major meltdown time at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, but no worries, we’re not talking about the tired toddler tantrum variety. The Great Melt Down—a two hour guided adventure that will have participants traveling back to the glacial age—is happening Saturday, April 3 from 1-3 p.m. 

The hike is led by a park ranger and will uncover the mysteries behind Sleeping Bear Dunes, which scientists call “the most complete record of glacial history” in any national park.  From rocks and hills to dunes and water, learn about how this quintessential Northern Michigan lakeshore was formed.

The program is part of a weekly Saturday series. It’s free, although you’ll need a park entrance pass.  No reservations required, but call ahead if you are bringing a large group 231-326-5134, extension 328. nps.gov/slbe/.
