The National Park Service is turning 100 on August 25th, 2016, and Traverse Magazine wants to celebrate with you! Honor this milestone by sharing your National Park memories with Traverse Magazine. Then we’ll feature Northern Michigan’s three beloved National Parks—Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore & Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore—in the July 2016 issue of Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine.

Wondering how you can participate? Here’s how to send in your photo of Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks or Sleeping Bear Dunes*:

  • Include your name, city and state
  • Attach your High Resolution image (at least 300 DPI at 4×6 inches)
  • Include the location, date when the photo was taken, and if you’re up for going the extra mile, include why you love this National Park

Email your photos to by March 1st, 2016 with “Park Pics for Traverse Magazine” as the subject line.

Because we have a limited amount of space in the feature, not every picture submitted can be published in the magazine. Pictures that aren’t published in print will be published on the web. If we publish your picture in the magazine, you’ll receive photo credit.

*Please note that by submitting your photo you allow Traverse Magazine & MyNorth Media the right to publish your photo in print and on the web.

We can’t wait to see your pictures!
