Rangers are trying to find out who spread broken glass over hundreds of yards of the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Leelanau County. Leelanau District

Ranger Andy Blake says there are thousands of shards of freshly-broke glass between a half inch and two inches large on the Lake Michigan beach near the Good Harbor Picnic Area. He says the glass is spread evenly up and down the beach, making it obvious this was a deliberate act.

Park staff and volunteers will be walking the beach to find as much of the glass as possible.

This is not the first time someone has spread glass at the Sleeping Near Dunes National Lakeshore. It happened on the Lake Michigan beach in Port Oneida in October of 2017.
