*some maps will put the location in Gary– that’s correct, too.

Join us for our next Climate Clinic at the Indiana Dunes!  This one day workshop is for naturalists, environmental educators, classroom teachers and community leaders. Presented in partnership with the National Park Service, animalia project and others.

Scholarships and group rates are available; please contact Susan: ask ~at~ animaliaproject.org

By commuter train via the South Shore Line
The train from Chicago’s Millenium Station leaves at 8:45 am and arrives in Miller at 9:49 — just in time for the workshop. (We planned it that way!) Get off the train at the Miller stop. The Dunes’ shuttle will be there to take you to the workshop (look for the red van at the Miller station).

Tickets can be purchased at some stations or with an app. You can buy a ticket from a conductor onboard with cash (there is a $1 fee if you buy onboard when the station has an agent on duty). More ticketing info here.
