About Dunes Learning Center

With a mission to inspire lasting curiosity and stewardship with nature, Dunes Learning Center connects children with the outdoor world through lessons in conservation and sustainability led by professional educators. Immersed in nature, students learn from hands-on experiences, grow to appreciate the environment and take action as the stewards of tomorrow.

Based within Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Dunes Learning Center is one of 17 independent nonprofits delivering residential and outreach environmental education programs in collaboration with the National Park Service. Established in 1998, Dunes Learning Center continues the environmental education legacy of co-founder Lee Botts, a strong advocate of preserving public lands and protecting the Great Lakes for future generations.

Today’s environmental leaders and scientists trace their interest back to childhood experiences. This year, more than 12,000 students will benefit from hands-on, field-based experiences that will pay dividends for years to come. A more sustainable future for all can be achieved by better understanding the interdependence of a healthy environment, vibrant economy and equitable society.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
