Join a park ranger to learn how to combat the spread of invasive species in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Saturday, July 1st from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. This program takes place at the national lakeshore’s Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education.

Learn how to identify common invasive plants, test your knowledge of Indiana’s native plants, and take a short hike through the national lakeshore’s Miller Woods to learn how to report invasive species using a free smartphone app. Kids will also have the chance to design and create their own invasive species button, and receive an invasive species souvenir from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
