This is a stellar special event hike to Lake Michigan and back. There will be a short presentation at the Nature Center about our moon before heading out on a 2-mile moderate hike to learn about the stars, our moon and the Dunes at night. Lunar treats will be provided thanks to the Friends of Indiana Dunes.

Our interpretive programs are designed to entertain and enrich folks of all ages. Children under 12 must have an adult with them at programs.

All our programs are free (unless otherwise noted). They are open to the public after paying the park entrance fee. ($7 in-state & $12 out-of-state)  

All our Interpretive programs are listed in Central Time.

The Nature Center's Current Hours:  Open Daily 9:00 – 4:00 CST

At this time pre-registration is not required for this program. 

*Note that during peak visitation times, entry into our park might be delayed.  Parking lots around the Nature Center can fill quickly. Please plan accordingly.*

Pets are welcome as long as they remain on a 6-foot leash and follow park rules listed here: https://www.in.gov/dnr/state-parks/property-rules-and-regulations/pet-rules/

Thanks to a donation from the Friends of Indiana Dunes (https://www.friendsofindianadunes.com/) our Nature Center has sand ATV chairs that may be rented for free from the Nature Center for those visitors with accessible trail needs.
