Join fellow dog owners Saturday, March 21 on a hike through the oak savanna habitat at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Miller Woods. This program meets at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education at 10:00 a.m. and runs until noon.
The trails have lots of smells for your dog, but be sure your dog is leashed and don’t forget to bring a bag to pick up after your dog! Some donated dog treats will be on hand to reward your pet’s good behavior with others.
While your dog is sniffing, you might be treated to a few early plants popping up along the one mile trail. If you’d like, you are welcome to continue the trail for another couple of miles over to Marquette Lagoon.
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 in the Miller section of Gary.
