CHESTERTON – Dunes Learning Center will hold a free family event, Get Outdoors Open House, on June 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Dunes Learning Center, 700 Howe Road, Chesterton.
The event is a great opportunity for families to visit Dunes Learning Center and enjoy the newly established Indiana Dunes National Park.
Attendees can expect free hikes led by Dunes Learning Center naturalists, a picnic lunch, live music, face painting, geocaching around campus, and crafts. Families can also volunteer for a citizen science "Bio Blitz," searching and recording plants and animals in a designated area. Kids can also check out the cabins and sample summer camp activities. Information about both day and overnight summer camps will be available.
