GLIN==> Indiana Coast Week 2008

Lake Michigan Coast Week events September 5-14, 2008






Lake Michigan Coast Week, September 5-14, will give Hoosiers the chance to celebrate the area’s splendor and increase their awareness of the region’s importance to northwest Indiana.


Each year the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Lake Michigan Coastal Program and partner organizations work to develop a slate of events. This year there is a wide variety of events to celebrate the diversity and splendor of the Lake Michigan coastal region. Events include the Denis Sullivan Sail, the Gary Clean Water Celebration at Marquette Park, an informative hike of historical interest through the Indiana Dunes, and the Michigan City Eco-Fit Challenge, just to name a few. Wherever you're interests lie, there is sure to be an activity or two that you'll find interesting and exciting. We look forward to sharing the wonders of our Lake Michigan Coastal Region with you!


This year, the Coastal Program brings back the Denis Sullivan, a 137-foot re-creation of a three-masted, 19th century Great Lakes schooner, to Michigan City harbor. The ship will be in port for three days this year with day sails and open deck tours for the general public. The Lake Michigan Coast Week programs and activities are provided free of cost to the public through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office of Coastal Resource Management.
