2013 – A Very Productive Year


The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes has done a lot again this year! While reviewing all of the projects underway this year, I was amazed by all the hard work done by so many volunteers. Over 170 volunteers worked over 3,200 hours in our Adopt-A-Beach, Adopt-A-River, Adopt-A-Trail, and our Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail Ambassador Program.  In addition, we made good progress in planning and developing new hiking and paddling trails – Kettles Trail and Bay to Bay Trail.

From a purely financial standpoint, the Friends provided grants or purchased equipment for the benefit of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore of almost $77,000. About $33,500 of this total came from the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail Maintenance Fund managed by TART.
