Join park staff and other volunteers for a morning of stewardship on Saturday, January 20, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Chellberg Farm. Help survey maple trees that are part of a national sugar maple research study. If the weather permits, we will start “tapping” the study trees. No previous experience is necessary. This is an outdoor project so dress for the weather and be prepared to walk in the winter woods. Meet at the Chellberg Farm / Bailly Homestead visitor center adjacent to the parking lot. For more information on this study, contact Wendy Smith at 219-395-1987 or at Wendy_W_Smith@nps.gov.

Chellberg Farm is located on Mineral Springs Road in Porter, 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 visit our website and our Facebook page.
