Summer Employee Housing Needed

Date: January 24, 2013

INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: The National Park Service is in need of short-term housing near Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for the summer's seasonal workforce of park rangers, guides, maintenance workers, and research aids.

Summer employees often have difficulty in finding suitable short-term housing. Most of the employees are college students or people just starting their careers and have limited budgets. Many apartments will not lease or rent for less than six months or a year and the park's summer employees typically work less than that starting in May. Most employees will be looking for temporary, (two to six months), housing, preferably furnished apartments or rooms with cooking privileges. 

Persons interested in receiving referrals for summer renters from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore should contact Administrative Program Assistant Bill Martin, at 219-395-1751.

Without fire, there could be no prairie at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Non-prairie plant species would crowd out native prairie grasses. These rare grasslands are maintained through periodic controlled burns.
