Contact: Ryan Koepke, 219-395-1882
In honor of Earth Day and National Park Week, join in to help protect the spring wildflowers of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Join a ranger on April 20, from 10:00 am - noon, in removing invasive species that are attacking the national lakeshore's Heron Rookery. The rookery trail is rich in native spring wildflowers, but garlic mustard and other aliens are invading. Wear comfortable clothes; work gloves and equipment will be provided. Insect repellent and sunscreen are recommended. After the work, enjoy a ranger-led Spring Wildflower Walk at the Heron Rookery starting at 2:00 pm.
