Sleeping Bear Dunes Celebrates NPS Centennial


Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore isn’t going to squander a good chance to celebrate; even though Sleeping Bear itself is only 46 years old, it’s joining in on the National Park Service’s (NPS) Centennial festivities (NPS.GOV) this summer. The complete calendar is still taking shape, but centennial-themed events, workshops, concerts and outings are sprinkled throughout the year. These include the Find Your Park Concert Series held at the Platte River or D.H. Day campground amphitheaters, the two-day historical Port Oneida Fair, monthly “star parties” and a brand new, one-day Astronomy Festival. The celebrations culminate on August 25 for the NPS Founders Day. For more information, visit
