Join us for a New Years Day hike at the Indiana Dunes. Feel the cool breeze on your face, breath in the clean air, listen to the birds singing. Just enjoy being outside. Start out the New Year on the right foot! We will hike about 5 to 6 miles on 2 trails mostly inland trails where it is sheltered from the winter winds. One of the trails will be the Inland Marsh or Cowles Bog Trail, a wonderful but underused trail. The second trail will be determined based on the weather and the interest of the group. You are welcome to join us for just the first portion if you like (approximately 3-4 miles). This is a great hike for both those new to being out in nature and the more experienced. This is an important natural area and is know as the “birthplace of ecology.” To sign up, email the leader Bob Brubaker or call between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. by December 29.
