Join us for a fun day on our second annual Indiana Dunes hike. Our Dunes hike this time will take us to the new Indiana Dunes National Park, on the Cowles Bog Trail. This will be an educational Field Trip Hike and will feature a short film about the Dunes, a presentation about how glaciers developed the area and how plants grew on the sand dunes, and where the Cowles name came from. We will meet at the Indiana Dunes National Park Visitors Center. Please dress for the weather, bring a backpack with water, snacks and hiking gear; I would suggest you bring trekking poles, ankle high boots, eye protection, and a regular or cellphone camera. We will stop and regroup when needed. Note: if you are looking for a quick out and back hike with no stops, sorry, this hike is not for you. This is not a 100% easy trail; be prepared for the trail difficulty. The pace will be moderate, not slow or fast. There is one big hill going down, and one going up, the rest are mostly regular hills. Terrain is Sandy with hard sand, some hills, wooded area, multi- biodiversity, spectacular Lake Michigan views, we will hike up to the lake shoreline possibly seeing small mammals. We will start at the Visitors Center, and then caravan to the Cowles Bog North Parking lot. This is a new member and guest friendly event. The location is on highway 49, North of the I-94 exit, and South of US-20, on the East side of the road. Do Not go to the Indiana Dunes State Park, we are at the Federal National Park.

As most of you know EBC has adopted a section of the Prairie Path to keep clean and it is time for the first cleanup. Our section is a 1.1 mile section of the prairie path from Monterey Ave. west of Rt. 83 to the UP tracks by Pioneer Park.

We have scheduled the first cleanup for Saturday, April 6th with a rain date of Sunday, April 7th. This is the “big” cleanup and we need lots of hands to help.

Additional cleanups will be scheduled for June, August and October.

On the 6th we will meet at the Villa Park Depot at 9:00 am where there is plenty of parking. We will split up and one group will drive over to Pioneer Park and start from there while the other group will start from the Depot. We will have safety vests, gloves, trash and recycling bags.

If anyone would like to lead a ride after the cleanup please post it accordingly.

DuPage County requires a volunteer waiver and release which we will send out with a reminder email in early April. If you are able to print, complete and bring it with you, that will speed things along that day. If not, we will have extra forms with us, but please plan on coming a little earlier to complete the form. If you have any questions, please call or email me.

Thanks everyone and we hope to see you on Saturday, April 6th!
