Kids of all ages are invited to celebrate and play in the outdoors at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Paul H. Douglas Center on Saturday, September 16, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The program takes place in the Douglas Center's Nature Play Zone and includes building forts, hiking in Miller Woods, doing a free craft activity, and feeding the center’s resident fish, turtles, snakes, toads, and frogs. Parents can watch their children’s creativity blossom during these relaxing two hours. Rangers will lead the programs and there is no need to pre-register.
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 neighborhood of Gary.
