Join a park ranger for a leisurely Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore bicycle tour from the Paul H. Douglas Center to West Beach on Saturday, October 24 at 1:30 pm. Return to the center for a six-mile round trip ride or have a friend pick you and your bike up at the West Beach parking lot. Don’t forget your safety helmet and water.
When you are done with your ride, enjoy free refreshments at the Douglas Center or take a short hike through our rare black oak savanna. The center features an open house Monday – Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. During that time, kids of all ages are invited to make a free nature craft, enjoy the hands-on exhibits or even help feed the Douglas Center’s resident amphibians, reptiles and fish.
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. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or check the park’s website at www.nps.gov/indu.
