INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: Join staff and other volunteers on Saturday, December 17, 2016, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Chellberg Farm for a morning of stewardship and fellowship.

Maple Sugar Time in March 2017 will host thousands of visitors. What most people never see is the work that leads up to the event. Maple Sugar Time requires lots of firewood for the making of maple syrup. We will be splitting and stacking firewood as well as clearing the paths in the sugar bush for the big event. Dress to be outdoors the entire time by wearing layers of clothing so you can adjust your temperature as we work. Meet at the main Chellberg Farm / Bailly Homestead parking lot.

Chellberg Farm is located on Mineral Springs Road in Porter, Indiana between U.S. Highways 12 and 20. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or check out the park’s website at
