Did you know….April 27 is National Volunteer Day (part of National Volunteer Week) and the National Lakeshore is sponsoring an appreciation event to celebrate all of their awesome volunteers? Over 257,000 people volunteered at one of the national parks last year and 1,632 people volunteered 44,741 hours at Sleeping Bear Dunes, breaking all previous records for the National Lakeshore.
Kickoff the summer season with popcorn and a movie – followed by a Star Party!

All current and future volunteers are invited to enjoy an additional screening of the documentary Chasing Ice. People who want to sign up as new volunteers are welcome, too. Our volunteers are truly Very Important People!
