Northern Michigan Dune Bears:

Michigan is home to the largest freshwater dune system in the world! And while Northern Michigan has fabulous dunes, it’s bears are also an exciting and important part of our national lakeshore. The Dune Bears are unique to Northern Michigan.


The name came from the original Pit Spitters naming contest when “Dune Bears” finished a close second. The Northern Michigan Dune Bears would like to welcome you to Turtle Creek Stadium. Have fun and enjoy the game, but remember, DO NOT feed the Bears!
