New Move To Change Indiana Dunes To A National Park

A new effort is underway in Congress to designate the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore along Lake Michigan as a national park.

A bill for the designation has been filed by Indiana Senators Todd Young and Mike Braun and Congressman Pete Visclosky. The same proposal was approved by the House in 2017 but failed to get through the last Congress.

Visclosky says designating Indiana Dunes as a national park would recognize what he calls the lakeshore’s environmental wonder and enhance the region’s economy.

The national lakeshore was established in 1966 and includes about 15-thousand acres at the southern end of Lake Michigan. There’s also an Indiana State Park nearby.
