Save the Dunes work is focused on our two dunes parks – the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the Indiana Dunes State Park that sits inside its boundary. Together they total over 15,000 acres of land and are protected in perpetuity thanks to efforts of Save the Dunes and other organizations working to protect the dunes since the early 1900s. While these parks are technically protected in perpetuity due to their federal and state designations, there are countless stressors, threats and planning issues that merit our attention. While protection of the natural resource itself is of utmost importance to us, there are many other ways we work to help these parks. This section of our website highlights some of our most important priorities for supporting both of our Indiana Dunes parks. We hope you will get involved and share your thoughts with us.
