Full Moon Hike at Indiana Dunes State Park

Come along with Naturalists and volunteers for this special full-moon hike to Lake Michigan and back. Stories about our moon and up-close views will be shared. The evening begins with an indoor information presentation until about 8:15 p.m., and the hike runs from 8:15-9:30 p.m. Some “stellar” treats will also be served thanks to the Friends of the Indiana Dunes.

  1. I haven’t found any info on starved rock website and calendar about this event. Also checked calendar dnr IL and event is not listed there. Do I need to register my girls scout?
