The visitor center interpretive staff offers a variety of nature programs for families from June 15 through Labor Day. Programs are provided most days of the week in the campground for persons staying at the park and at the visitor center for day visitors.
Programs vary from year to year, but some popular favorites, such as Feeding Frenzy, Snakes Alive, Frog and Toad Hunt, Stream Explorations and Little Creatures of the Dunes, return by demand each year. Weekly schedules are posted at the visitor center and in the bulletin cases found at the day beach and campground buildings. Programs suitable for persons with disabilities are noted on the schedule with the universal wheelchair symbol.
