SPRING BEAUTY CONTEST AT INDIANA DUNES


         If you are interested in learning more about wild flowers,
“Duneland Dimensions: Spring Beauty Contest” is the program for you.
This program will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 3 at the Dorothy
Buell Memorial Visitor Center in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
         Humbling though it may be, spring wildflowers do not bloom for
us humans to enjoy them. They are doing their own thing, which means
racing the emerging leaves for sun. Join local botanist Barbara Plampin
for this 60-minute program to find out how spring wildflowers   manage
to emerge, bloom, store food and set seed all before the trees leaf out
and cut off the sunshine.
         The Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center is located on Kemil
Road between highways U.S. 12 and U.S. 20.   For more information on
this or other programs call Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore at (219)
926-7561, extension 225.
