More About National Get Outdoors Day Open House

Dunes Learning Center’s campus will be open to the public on Saturday,
June 9th from 11am - 3pm in honor of National Get Outdoors Day.

Located within Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore at 700 Howe Rd in Chesterton, guests will have the opportunity to find out about habitat restoration on campus, investigate life in the forest, check out what’s a-buzz in the pollinator garden and dip a net in the Little Calumet River to learn about water quality. They can also pull on a tree-climbing harness and ascend into the canopy with Davey® Tree Service, discover why some bugs are insects but not all insects are bugs with Franklin Pest Solutions, and get the latest details on local access plus safety tips with NWI Paddling Association. In between activities, guests can relax and enjoy live music on the lawn.

Rain gear donations requested to help ensure students are always prepared to explore and learn outdoors. For more information or to pre-register, duneslearningcenter.org/public.

More About this Event Poster: 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.
