Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail Ambassador – Spring Training Meeting

Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM
Place: at the DH Day Log Cabin in DH Day Campground. Please park at Glen Haven and ride your bike or walk the trail to the log cabin. Parking is limited in the campground.

If you are looking for a way to help keep the trail beautiful and meet a lot of nice people, while enjoying a relaxing walk or bike ride, you’ll want to learn more about the Trail Ambassador program. Many of our volunteers are families or groups of friends who enjoy biking or walking the trail together. It’s simple, easy, and fun.

Boardwalk on Westman Rd.

Our Trail Ambassadors ride or walk the trail, so they can be available to assist trail users and answer questions. Ambassadors are also our eyes and ears on the trail. They report any trail problems to our Trail Crew. We will also provide more information about programs on the trail like our “Catch ’em doing something RIGHT” program. We will talk about safety issues and trail rules. 

Now that the trail is getting longer, we can use even more Ambassadors, so encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to come to this meeting and join up! Trail Ambassadors receive an annual pass to the National Lakeshore.

If you would like to become a Trail Ambassador, but are unable to attend the meeting, fill out our Volunteer Registration Form and mark Heritage Trail Ambassador. One of our Volunteer Coordinators will contact you for training.

Adopt-A-Beach & Adopt-A-Trail – Spring Training Meeting

Date: Saturday, May 18, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM
Place: at the DH Day Log Cabin in DH Day Campground. Please park at Glen Haven and ride your bike or walk the trail to the log cabin. Parking is limited in the campground.

Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore will be hosting a training meeting for Adopt-A-Beach and Adopt-A-Trail volunteers. This training session is for NEW VOLUNTEERS.

Adopt-A-Beach Volunteer at Bookeloo Beach

Adopt-A-Beach volunteers walk our beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, collect litter and trash, and report what they find. This information is provided to the Alliance for the Great Lakes to be included in their database. Volunteers also report any safety issues to Park Maintenance. Our volunteers also assist Park visitors by answering questions while on their beach patrol.

Adopt-A-Trail volunteers hike their designated trail, remove small obstacles like down branches. They report any down trees or significant erosion issues to Park management.  One of the things trail volunteers enjoy most is interacting with other hikers, answering questions about the Park and the surrounding area.

Adopt-A-Trail Volunteers

If you would like to become a volunteer, but are unable to attend the meeting, fill out our Volunteer Registration Form and mark Heritage Trail Ambassador. One of our Volunteer Coordinators will contact you for training.
