Freshwater Dune Summit
May 7 & 8, 2017
Muskegon, Michigan

Lauded by poets as the Midwest's Grand Canyon or Yosemite, and named "the Most Beautiful Place in America," our Great Lakes coastal dunes drive a thriving and diverse economy and offer a unique lifestyle.

Registration is now open for this first-time event welcoming outdoor adventurers, sand dune advocates, academic researchers and tourism professionals with a casual mix of recreation, information, and local food and beer, all in celebration of the beauty and value of our amazing natural asset.

It's a chance to learn more about the dunes, connect with other people who research, advocate for, and promote their enjoyment, and get out and have some new dune adventures of your own.

Michigan Environmental Council, Heart of the Lakes and West Michigan Environmental Action Council are presenting the Freshwater Dune Summit to advance the protection of this remarkable natural landscape. Join us, invite your networks, and help spread the word online with #dunegood #dunescience #howyoudune !
