Though we cannot always provide a ranger-led hike at our education center, please consider working with the education specialist to set up a Douglas Center visit where you can accomplish a self-guided hike inside and outside the facility. Provided below is one of our three new self-guided programs that adhere to visiting the Douglas Center. Once you have selected your trip date and location, please call our scheduling office at 219-395-1885 so we can put your group on our calendar. We want to know that you are coming because it:
- helps us coordinate the use of different park areas,
- helps minimize overbooking the use of the environmental education building
- enables us to inform you about changes to the area(s) you are visiting, and,
- allows us to direct you to resources you may not know about.
