Burn off some holiday calories by joining a ranger on Friday, November 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., to help remove vines, shrubs and small trees that are growing up around fruit trees at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s historic Camp Good Fellow. Some of the fruit trees date back to when the camp operated more than 40 years ago. Hand tools and work gloves will be provided for this outdoor project. Wear comfortable work clothes.
Meet at the Good Fellow Camp, home of the Dunes Learning Center, located at 700 Howe Road, in Porter, Indiana. Follow the camp road until you pass the lodge (big red building on left), turn right and park in the gravel lot. The ranger will meet you in the parking lot. For more information on other programs at the national lakeshore, visit the park website at www.nps.gov/indu/planyourvisit or contact the park's information desk at 219-395-1882.
