June is Coastal Awareness Month in Indiana
Start Date: 5/24/2018
Event Description:
Coastal Awareness Month in June is a chance for Hoosiers to celebrate northwest Indiana’s unique natural resources and the region’s importance to the rest of the state.

Lake Michigan is a source of recreation, drinking water, industrial resources and more. The 45 miles of shoreline in Indiana is the most biologically diverse in the Great Lakes region.

A lineup of Coastal Awareness Month activities is available at

Events include guided hikes, festivals, concerts, cruises aboard the W.G. Jackson research vessel, a conference on the environment, paddling excursions, fishing derbies, Washington Park Zoo’s 90th anniversary celebration, a fun run 5K through Ogden Dunes, historical tours and talks, classes and workshops, volunteer days, and more.

“Coastal Awareness events throughout June offer opportunities for fun, learning and adventure,” said Kathryn Vallis, outreach and education assistant for the DNR Lake Michigan Coastal Program. “Whatever your interests may be, there are events for you.”

The Lake Michigan Coastal Program and its partners administer Coastal Awareness Month each year.
