National Lakeshore Open and Ready for Busy Summer
INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: New superintendent Paul Labovitz recently welcomed about 80 seasonal employees to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in preparation for another busy summer along the shores of Lake Michigan. Even with the summer-long closure of Mt. Baldy for research into its mysterious holes, the vast majority of the national park is open despite some rumors to the contrary. In the last two weeks, both the national lakeshore and the nearby Indiana Dunes State Park have received numerous calls from people who heard that the two parks were closed. One caller even mentioned that a downstate television station was reporting the national lakeshore’s closure.
