INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: Explore Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Chellberg Farm and our shared Duneland Heritage during this open house hosted by a ranger and volunteers on September 21, from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
 
Celebrate apples through traditional craft and farming demonstrations. Watch an apple pie cooking demonstration on the woodstove, apple butter making, or try your hand at an old-fashioned apple cider press before enjoying a free sample of cider. Stop by the farm’s garden to see what’s being harvested and preserved this time of year, learn how to make rag rugs or just sit back and enjoy “Banjo Bob” Ahrendt as he sings some traditional songs in front of the farm house. This event is free.
 
The Chellberg/Bailly parking lot is located on Mineral Springs Road between U.S. 20 and Highway 12 in Porter, Indiana.
