NATIONAL PARK SERVICE PLANS PUBLIC MEETINGS FOR SHORELINE RESTORATION MANAGEMENT PLAN
Be part of the future. The National Park Service (NPS) is in the early stages of a Shoreline Restoration and Management Plan and an associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. NPS staff will host four open houses where they will introduce the issues that affect the Park’s shoreline, biological communities, foredunes, sand movement and beach nourishment and will propose tools to restore and manage this treasure along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. The majority of the open house is set aside for public questions and comments.
