  • First Saturday Stargazing program runs November 7 from 5 pm to 7 pm at Kemil Beach parking lot. Join members of the Chicago Astronomical Society as they view the night sky through telescopes to see the Milky Way crossing the night sky overhead from north-east to south-west. Expect to see examples of ancient star clusters like the Hercules Globular Cluster and young Star Clusters like the Wild Duck Cluster. There will also be colored double stars, planetary nebula, and the Andromeda Galaxy. These programs will continue on the first Saturday of every month, except March and July.

  • We are elated to receive another addition to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Artist-in-Residence Collection. This wonderful watercolor of the Chellberg Farm area was created by James Johnson. James traveled from Grand Rapids, Michigan to paint the dunes. He spent two weeks exploring the sundry landscapes and was drawn to the lines and the light of the windmill and granary.
