You can meet in the Marquette Park United Methodist Church at 11 AM that morning and carpool and or car caravan to see what it's like to walk on a floating trail!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Anyone who would like to participate on our summer activities this year, Listen to this!

Our first free activity of 2015 is to meet at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Pinhook Bog at noon on Saturday, May 30! The bog is about 25 miles away from Miller.  We're going to take a walk for about a mile on an easy path, that is actually floating.

 If you want to car caravan from the Marquette Park United Methodist Church parking lot, meet at 11 AM that morning and Mandy Renslow will steer you in the right direction.



Directions:  The bog doesn’t have a street address since it isn’t a house, but you can put 0856 N Wozniak Rd, La Porte, IN in your navigational system and it will lead you to the  house across the street from the bog.

1. Pinhook Bog is right outside of Michigan City at the 421 exit going south.

2. When you get off of 80/94E and go south on 421... that's exit A (not Exit B which takes you through Michigan City.

3. Once you're on 421 S. you turn left at the first road which is 200 N. and you go for 2.2 miles to the stop sign.

4. There you turn right onto Wozniak road.

5.  Pinhook Bog is about three quarters of a mile down the road on the left.


We have hats for you, and bags with water bottles and treats and equipment for hiking on the floating trail. You need to dress in long sleeves and long pants with light clothing and old shoes or rubber boots and mosquito spray. Come join the fun.  We are going to gather information for making an ecology play, ‘Footsteps in the Dunes’, this summer! Be there or be square!
