Sleeping Bear Dunes

National Lakeshore - Michigan

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located along the northwest coast of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan in Leelanau and Benzie counties near Empire, Michigan. The park covers a 35-mile-long (56 km) stretch of Lake Michigan's eastern coastline, as well as North and South Manitou islands. This Northern Michigan park was established primarily because of its outstanding natural features, including forests, beaches, dune formations, and ancient glacial phenomena. The lakeshore also contains many cultural features including the 1871 South Manitou Island Lighthouse, three former stations of the Coast Guard (formerly the Life-Saving Service) and an extensive rural historic farm district.

Beginning around the early 1860s, the site supported a lucrative lumber industry. By the 1890s, the decline in demand for lumber and deforestation motivated a transition to an agricultural-based economy. The agrarian community existed into the mid-19th century.

The U.S. Life-Saving Service was merged with the Revenue Cutter Service in 1915 to create the U.S. Coast Guard. US Life-Saving Service The United States Life-Saving Service (USLSS), the predecessor to the United States Coast Guard, formed in 1878. The story of the USLSS dates to almost 100 years before the service became an official agency, to the noble efforts of the Humane Society of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a group of affluent individuals seeking to prevent needless deaths from shipwrecks.

A smiling woman in a green NPS uniform with arms crossed Wildland Fire in Red Pine and White Pine The red pine and white pine forest inhabits the cooler climates of the upper Midwest. They once covered large areas of northern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. Red and white pine forests owe their presence and persistence in large part to fire. Although both types of trees can live in areas without fire, especially on very sandy soils, frequent fires are necessary for healthy forests. Small flames consume dead pine needles and log under red and white pine trees. Boekelodge Log Cabin Cultural Landscape District The period of significance for Boekelodge is 1929 to 2005, corresponding to the original cabin construction and use of the land as a homestead, purchase and use by the Boekeloo family, and the purchase by the NPS and expiration of the use agreement. The cultural landscape contains beach, dunes, woodland, trails, buildings, and small-scale features. It was one of the last existing wilderness retreats, which were popular in the mid-20th century, in the state of Michigan.

Changing Patterns of Water Availability May Change Vegetation Composition in US National Parks Across the US, changes in water availability are altering which plants grow where. These changes are evident at a broad scale. But not all areas experience the same climate in the same way, even within the boundaries of a single national park. A new dataset gives park managers a valuable tool for understanding why vegetation has changed and how it might change in the future under different climate-change scenarios.
