Inspiring curiosity, scientific literacy and environmental stewardship through hands-on learning in the dunes.
Our naturalist staff and 63-acre campus are truly valuable and unique resources, offering residential and outreach programs in partnership with the National Park Service—an arrangement that is common to less than 25 environmental learning centers in the nation.

The first time away from home. The first time hiking under a sky full of stars. The first time seeing Lake Michigan. These experiences motivate and inspire students. Your donation today will help keep life-changing learning experiences affordable and accessible to children who are counting on you.
