INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: The National Park Service is in serious need of short-term housing near Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for the summer's seasonal workforce of park rangers, guides, maintenance workers, and research aids, according to Superintendent Constantine Dillon.

"Many of our summer employees experience difficulty in finding suitable short-term housing. Most of these employees are either college students or just starting their careers and have limited budgets. Many apartment owners will not lease or rent for less than six months or a year. We are looking for temporary, (two to six months), housing, preferably furnished apartments or rooms with cooking privileges," said Dillon

Persons interested in receiving referrals for summer renters from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore should contact Administrative Program Assistant Bill Martin, at 219-395-1751.

Cowles Bog is not a true bog but rather a fen because it has an underground water source. This water source has contact with limestone bedrock, making the fen’s water slightly alkaline. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is restoring a portion of this fen.
