INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: join scientist Bob Brodman onSaturday, March 26, at 1:30 pm for a program on amphibians based upon his research work at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The program is presented at the Paul H. Douglas Center as part of its weeklySaturdayOpen House Series. Dr. Brodman's talk will include restoration of fragmented habitats, using amphibian-friendly plants or crops and identifying environmentally friendly herbicides. This program will be repeated at the Douglas Center onJune 18.
In addition to this program, the open house features a variety of family-friendly activities. The kids can make a free nature craft or help feed the center's resident fish, amphibians and reptiles. Then, hike in spectacular Miller Woods and warm up inside afterwards with a cup of hot coffee or chocolate. As always, the nature play zone, adjacent to the center, is open for exploring, building and creative play in the outdoors.
The Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education is located in the western portion of the national lakeshore at 100 North Lake Street, about one mile north of U.S. Highway 12.
