The Friends of Indiana Dunes group is hosting a 30th anniversary celebration for the public at Indiana Dunes State Park on Sept. 22.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. CDT at Wilson Shelter. Visitors can take part in fun nature- oriented activities, wagon rides, snacks and refreshments, live music and more.
The anniversary celebration will also mark the culmination of the Geology, Flora and Fauna Find-a-thon competition, sponsored by the Friends group. Between now and Sept. 22, hikers and other recreationists can identify different natural treasures in the dunes for a chance to win prizes. Participants can pick up a Find-a-thon form at the state park or Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center. Forms can also be downloaded from the Friends of Indiana Dunes Facebook page, facebook.com/friendsofindianadunes.
