Region residents are encouraged to celebrate Indiana’s Lake Michigan shoreline during Coastal Awareness Month in June. The Indiana DNR says the 45 miles of shoreline is the most biologically diverse in the Great Lakes region. The Lake Michigan Coastal Program and its partners have a number of activities planned to celebrate Indiana’s Great Lakes access.  A full list of events is at cam.dnr.IN.gov.

“Coastal Awareness events in June offer an amazing variety of opportunities for fun, learning, and adventure throughout northwest Indiana,” said Kathryn Vallis, Coastal Resources planner for the DNR Lake Michigan Coastal Program. “Whatever your interests may be, there are events for you.”
