[DNR] History Comes Alive weekend at Indiana Dunes SP, Sept. 7-8
Start Date: 8/26/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 8/26/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Indiana Dunes State Park invites guests to relive the history of the dunes area on Sept. 7 and 8.

All weekend, members of the Ouiatenon Brigade will be at an encampment on the beach, just east of the beach pavilion. The brigade portrays the French-Canadian voyageurs of the 1700s in dress, food and lifestyle.

Interpretive naturalists will lead hikes to the encampment from the nature center. Both days offer other programs on the park’s early history and include demonstrations of American Indian lifeways at the nature center.

On Sunday at 2 p.m., the nature center will host a program about two friends who circumnavigated Lake Michigan in a homemade dugout canoe. Titled “Two girls and a tree named Makeba,” the presentation will detail their three-month experience.
 
Participation is free after paying the standard gate fee of $5 per Indiana vehicle and $10 per out-of-state vehicle. For more information, call (219) 926-1390.
 
Indiana Dunes State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2980.htm) is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
