The Indiana Dunes is one of our areas’ most vital natural resources and they need our help. In this Community Conversation Series, we will learn more about the history of the dunes along Lake Michigan south shore. In this two-part series, the La Porte County Public Library and the La Porte County Soil and Water are partnering to offer a film screening of “Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability” with a Q&A with the film’s producers, and in the second part, a panel of experts will explore on-going conservation issues and other aspects of the dunes’ health.

May 19 – Film Screening
Learn more about the history of the Indiana Dunes and how the 10 distinct ecological zones became a National Lakeshore in the 2016 documentary “Shifting Sand.” Add your questions to the Q&A with the filmmakers.
