Wildflower Database

Like many visitors to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, as your enjoy hiking through the woods or along a lakeshore, kayaking in rivers and lakes, and biking on back roads and trails, you come across a new flower of plant you do not usually see. As the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore works to bring the land back to the natural state of being, this has allowed for native local flora and fauna to return.

We have developed two tools to help you identify and learn about the wildflowers of Sleeping Bear Dunes. The simple wildflower field guide contains pictures and names of the most common flowers in the area and can be easily folded up and taken with you on your hike. This is available at the Visitor Center for a small donation. You will have to download two pdf documents:
Wildflowers Front
Wildflowers Back.

We also offer an online database of wildflowers that is organized by color and season. To open the database, click on the color category below to view a summary of flowers for each color category.
