Hot cocoa and cookies will be served. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required. Space is limited. For more information and to register, visit DunesLearningCenter.org/
“This is a great way for the public to explore our Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore campus in winter and experience firsthand the acclaimed naturalist-led programs that are usually only available to visiting classrooms,” said Geof Benson, executive director of Dunes Learning Center. “We can all benefit from being a kid for a day!”
Event partners and sponsors include ArcelorMittal, BP, Enbridge, Friends of Indiana Dunes, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, and NIPSCO. Arts activities made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, South Shore Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
