Kids of all ages are invited to celebrate and play in the outdoors at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Saturday, July 7 and July 21, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The program includes building forts, hiking in Miller Woods, doing a free craft activity, and feeding the Center’s  resident fish, turtles, snakes, toads, and frogs.
Rangers lead the free program and there is no need to pre-register. "Playdate in the Nature Play Zone" is presented the first and third Saturday of the month through November. A parent or guardian must be present during the program.  
The Paul H.
