Indiana Representative Tries To Make Indiana Dunes A National Park

PORTER, Ind. — A new effort is being made in Congress to designate the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore along Lake Michigan as a national park.

Rep. Pete Visclosky says designating the Indiana Dunes area in Porter County as a national park would recognize what he calls the lakeshore’s environmental wonder and help grow the region’s economy.

The same proposal was approved by the U.S. House in 2017 but was never voted on by the Senate.
