Temporary Site Closures at National Lakeshore
Contact: Bruce Rowe, 219-395-1609
Three sites within Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore may experience brief, temporary closures this winter. West Beach, Tolleston Dunes, and Cowles Bog may be closed on a few weekday afternoons between January 27 and March 31, 2014. The closures are to ensure the safety of the public during resource restoration work related to deer management. These sites will remain open on most weekdays this winter and will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
