The Annual Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes training is scheduled for June 11th, at 1 pm at the Empire Town Hall.

The general orientation will begin at 1 pm. This usually includes a welcome by the Friends Chair, followed by information useful to all volunteers from the Park Superintendent, Volunteer Coordinator, and Rangers.
At 2 pm we will schedule breakout sessions for individual volunteer groups: Adopt-A-Trail, Adopt-A-Beach, Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, and the Track Chair program.

At this time of hybrid remote working, we will plan to live-stream the general orientation and some volunteer leaders will also have additional training that can be done remotely.
