Indiana Dunes State Park will host a special falcon program on Saturday, Feb. 9, at the nature center.
The program starts at 1 p.m. CST. It will feature North America’s smallest falcon, the American kestrel, and a partnership program in which citizens can help build and monitor kestrel nest boxes. A live kestrel will be featured during the program.
The American kestrel species is of concern due to its declining population.
The program is free after the entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $10 per out-of-state vehicle.
For more information, call (219) 926-1390.
Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
