Saugatuck Dunes State Park
September 23-25, 2021
The network of dunes along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan is the result of the interaction of glacial movement and deposition, water, prevailing winds, vegetation, and human systems over numerous time scales. The varying landforms and ecosystems which collide along the lakeshore produce a varied and impressive experience across a relatively small area.
MLA students spent three days and two nights experiencing the landscapes near Saugatuck and Holland, MI through a series of walks and drawing exercises.
