The Native Plant sale pre-order forms will be available at the State Park Office, Chesterton Feed and Garden Center, and the Indiana Dunes Tourism Center by February 15th. To request that a pre-order be mailed to you, please contact Zella Olson, at 219-926-3833 or email@example.com. The deadline for submitting is April 9th, 2022.
More than 100 native plant species, including woodland flowering plants and ferns; dry medium and wet prairie flowering plants, as well as grasses, shrubs, and trees are available. All varieties come in pots and are native to Northwest Indiana, Northeast Illinois, and Southwest Michigan.
Tourism officials expect the national park designation will help draw even more visitors to Northwest Indiana. Patrons enjoy the hiking trails, biking trails, woodlands, prairies, savannas, bogs, wetlands and, of course, the Indiana sand dunes, which reach heights up to 192 feet.
