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.
