    If you are the type that will WALK MILES TO GET TO A SECLUDED BEACH, this is your spot. On your way to the beach you will walk through the remnant of the once-widespread wetland system called Cowles Bog. The bog encompasses a marsh surrounding a small fen, where a stand of tamaracks and white pines grows on a floating mat of peat moss. Starting near the guardhouse in the northeastern part of the site, a boardwalk trail passes marshes and ponds that host horned grebes, black-crowned night herons, buffleheads, and a myriad of other water birds. You can hike right out to the beach and back on 4.5 miles of interconnecting loop trails. Two trailheads serve the trail system, each with a portable toilet. Parking is very limited and needless to say there are no lifeguards making the trek out to this secluded beach.

    Indiana Dunes State Park encompasses 2,182 acres of beach, dunes, marshes, swamps, hardwood forests, and white pine groves and is surrounded by National Lakeshore lands. The park's 16.5 miles of trails allow you to explore all these habitats, which shelter diverse wildlife and provide excellent birding. Even on the busiest summer days, if you head away from the public beach house, you'll quickly lose the crowds. Scan the open water for ships, beachcomb, and take in the sweeping backdrop of the dunes. Watch birds on the open water, feeding at the water's edge, or from the small bird observatory in the park’s Nature Center. The park provides camping, picnicking, showers, snack bar, camp store, and a park naturalist. In summer, the park offers a small gift shop and swimming beach with lifeguards. Interpretive naturalist programs are held daily between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and on weekends the rest of the year.

    MT. BALDY IS CLOSED, but all other Indiana Dunes beaches and sand dunes are open. Visitors wanting to see or hike tall sand dunes are encouraged to visit Indiana Dunes State Park and do The 3 Dune Challenge (http://www.indianadunes.com/3dc). To complete The 3 Dune Challenge, a person must hike a special 1.5 mile course at Indiana Dunes State Park, climbing Mount Jackson (elevation 176 feet), Mount Holden (184 feet), and Mount Tom (192 feet). Some parts of the trail feature 40-degree slopes, making each step that much more, well, challenging. In the sandy vertical climbs, it’s common to take two steps forward and slide one step back. The 3 Dune Challenge’s dunes are significantly higher than the 125-foot Mt. Baldy. As for Mt. Baldy, it is just one of several Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore sites, and the other sites remain open, including West Beach, Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk, Porter Beach, Kemil Road Beach, Dunbar Access Point, Lake View Picnic Area and Central Avenue Beach. Explore this website or call Indiana Dunes Tourism at (800) 283-8687 for more information. Note that Mt. Baldy will remain closed until further notice while scientists investigate unexplained holes that have opened up on its surface. Mt. Baldy is the only site where such issues have been reported.

    - Looking for a fun day trip for the entire family?

    Pokagon State Park's refrigerated Toboggan Run near Angola, Indiana, has about 90,000 riders every season. With the 30-foot tower and dips and valleys, the total vertical drop is 90 feet over the course of a quarter mile. The top recorded speed is 42 mph. It's a 20 to 30 second thrill ride.

    It opens for the season, with or without snow at 10:30 a.m., Nov. 27. It operates on weekends only through Feb. 28, 2016.

    Hours:
    Friday: 5:30-9 p.m.
    Saturday: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m.
    Sunday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

    The Toboggan has extended hours during winter break and is open on New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day and Presidents’ Day.

    Pokagon State Park is near Angola in NE Indiana. Toboggans are $13/hour and a maximum of 4 people can be on a sled. Must use toboggans provided--they are designed for the track. Sled with snow or no snow!

    Park entrance fees: $7 in-state vehicles, $9 out-of-state vehicles, $2 a person on a bus.

    You will need to carry your toboggan back to the top so make sure that you bring a friend to help. This would be difficult for a single adult with kids.

    - Fruit Tree Pruning and Grafting Workshops are offered at Buckley Homestead on Tuesday, March 8 from 1 – 5 p.m. Pruning fruit trees increases production both in quality and quantity of the fruit. Grafting produces a better quality plant. Both techniques will be presented by Purdue University professor, Dr. Peter Hirst. Pruning will be conducted in the Buckley Homestead orchard and the grafting of apple trees will be held in the nearby Buckley barn.

    The pruning workshop and listening to the grafting is free. A $10 fee will be charged to cover the rootstock for the hands-on apple grafting workshop.

    Register for either or both by contacting the Purdue Cooperative Extension Office at 219-755-3240 or http://www.extension.purdue.edu/lake.

    The deadline for the hands-on grafting workshop is Feb 12.
