Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Media Advisory

Opening for Nature in My Neighborhood Postponed Until April 27
INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: The National Park Service has postponed the launch of the Nature in My Neighborhood initiative at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore scheduled for tomorrow. The cancellation is due to the forecast of heavy rain and probable thundershowers creating unsafe conditions for school children and others attending the event.
It has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 27 and will take place during the Green Gary Event at the Paul H. Douglas Center. Specific times and additional details will be sent in a follow-up media advisory later this week.
For additional information, contact national lakeshore public information officer Bruce Rowe at 219-395-1609 or by e-mail at bruce_rowe@nps.gov.
Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is a part of the National Park Service: More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America's 401 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.

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.
