Support outdoor science education with a gift through your company!

Science comes alive for kids at Dunes Learning Center, and your annual sponsorship will inspire the stewards of tomorrow. Throughout the year, we get more than 12,000 students outdoors to explore and learn. 

Special events give these kids the opportunity to bring their families to our Indiana Dunes National Park campus for more adventures in nature. Public events, including the annual gala, connect you to other Dunes Learning Center sponsors and individual donors. 

NEW THIS YEAR: In response to feedback, we’ve streamlined our sponsorship levels and increased benefits. All sponsorship levels may be tailored to meet your marketing and hospitality needs.
