​​The Friends of Whitefish Dunes

Summer is here again and we are looking forward to seeing all of our old friends and friends to be. The beach area has changed quite a bit over the winter. Due to the rising water level, (two feet so far), and the fact that we didn't have our usual ice build-up to protect the dunes this winter, the  beach area is much smaller. Those of you have been visiting us over the years may be a little surprised when you get here. There is still some beach, just not as much as last year.

See you soon.
