INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: Join a National Park Service ranger at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for a tour of five historic homes from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair on Saturday, October 20 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. Each tour will last one hour and fifteen minutes and includes an inside look at the Cypress Log House, House of Tomorrow, Florida Tropical House, Armco-Ferro House, and the Rostone House. Reservations are required and there is a $15 per person fee to cover the cost of shuttle buses between the parking lot and the houses. There is no on-site parking available.
These tours are offered in partnership with the Dunes National Park Association (DNPA), who will take tour reservations through the DNPA website starting on September 10. The DNPA is a nonprofit organization that supports the protection, preservation, and promotion of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Cowles Bog is not a true bog but rather a fen because it has an underground water source. This water source has contact with limestone bedrock, making the fen’s water slightly alkaline. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is restoring a portion of this fen.
