Join us on Saturday, June 16 for a themed hike in the nature preserves of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. We are partnering with the United Urban Network, The Field Museum, Chicago Wilderness, and Calumet Stewardship Initiative to lead a family-oriented “soundwalk” in Miller Woods for “Leave No Child Inside” month. Our event helps children of all ages to experience the audible side of nature, the vital and all-encompassing natural soundscape.
Other groups will lead themed hikes starting at 9 AM. These lead up our soundwalk at 2 to 3 PM, the final event of the day. Our soundwalk begins at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education, 100 N Lake Street Gary, IN 46403 (map).
Miller Woods is located in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
