Seeing a greater need for preservation of all structures within Glen Haven Michigan, Maggie and Jeff Kato formed Balancing Environment And Rehabilitation (BEAR) Non-Profit in November 2018 in response to a Request for Expression of Interest regarding adaptive re-use of Sleeping Bear Inn issued by the National Park Service and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. BEAR seeks to renovate the Inn and use profits generated from its operation to continue to restore Glen Haven and ensure its sustainability. BEAR’S mission is to ensure the history and heritage of Glen Haven Michigan is made sustainable through the rehabilitation of its historic structures and that preserving the history and legacy of previous generations is essential for future generations.
