Indiana Dunes National Park has over 60 years of history in its journey to becoming a national park. It started in 1899 when botanist Henry Cowles published a paper on the unique flora of the area, which gained international acclaim. That started interest in preserving the unique ecosystem along the southern edge of Lake Michigan. It wasn’t until 1966, however, that President Kennedy officially made it a part of the National Park Service. Four expansion bills later and Indiana Dunes National Park covers more than 15,000 acres of protected land. Remember your amazing hike through the Indiana Dunes with this collectible hiking medallion!
