Tired of winter and hoping that the Groundhog doesn’t see his shadow? Then get out of the house and enjoy a day of fun, (and mostly) indoor activities at both the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center and Paul H Douglas Center for Environmental Education

There will be a ton of fun activities for young and old along with free movies and music throughout the day. If you haven’t got enough of winter yet, then join a ranger for an outdoor adventure hike or borrow some snowshoes or skis and explore Miller Woods on your own.
