Region residents are invited to join a ranger for a birding-themed bike ride at the Indiana Dunes National Park on Saturday, October 5, from 8:30 am to 11:30 am, starting from the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education. Bring your bike and the National Park will provide the binoculars and take participants to some spots in Miller to see birds and enjoy a morning bike ride. “Get your exercise and learn some basic birding techniques,” said the announcement.
The Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education is located in the western portion of the national park at 100 North Lake Street, about one mile north of U.S. Highway 12 in the Miller neighborhood of Gary.
