Green Drinks Gary - Creating a Calumet National Heritage Area

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, May 03, 2016

Come on out to Mama Pearl’s BBQ, located at 411 East 5th Avenue in Gary, Indiana, on May 3rd from 6 - 8pm for Green Drinks Gary and learn about the ongoing effort, led by the Calumet Heritage Partnership and The Field Museum, to create a Calumet National Heritage Area. National Heritage Areas shine a light on local heritage that is nationally important. In doing so they can attract tourism, new economic opportunities, and increase civic engagement. They are grass-roots initiatives that receive federal support, but need the support of locals to become a reality. Come learn more, and how you can get involved.   *From 6-6:30pm we encourage attendees to network with one another, order food, and get settled in. The guest speaker's presentation will begin at 6:30pm. Mama Pearl's does not serve alcohol however attendees are welcome to bring their own (byob).*   Presenter(s): Mario Longoni is an Urban Anthropology Manager in the Keller Science Action Center at The Field Museum. His work in the Calumet Region dates back to 2002 when he contributed to the Journey Through Calumet project (http://archive.fieldmuseum.org/calumet/), highlighting the Region's cultural assets. Subsequently he produced the Grab This Fish Tale comic book (https://www.fieldmuseum.org/sites/default/files/FishTale_web_0.pdf) to advise Calumet anglers on smart fish consumption. Like these previous projects, the Calumet National Heritage Area initiative aims to improve local quality of life by building on the existing strengths and resources of local communities and the wider region.   For additional information on this and future events please visit Green Drinks Gary’s facebook page at www.facebook.com/GreenDrinksGary, join our facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1682928161975070/, check out our website at http://www.greendrinks.org/IN/Gary, or send an email to [email protected].   See you May 3rd! Until then…STAY CALM and THINK GREEN.   Green Drinks Gary takes place every first Tuesday of the month. It is open to the public, free to attend and all ages are welcome!   Green Drinks Gary is organized and managed by Rachel Veronesi, Cathy Martin and Cassandra Cannon.

Dunes Blowout Poster Unveiling

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm, June 17, 2016

The Dunes Blowout is going to be one of the biggest events this year and we want to tell you all about it! Head over to Fire & Water at noon on Friday, June 17 and learn who will be performing at this amazing event. This will be a celebration of the 2016 Indiana Bicentennial, National Park Service Centennial and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore 50th Anniversary Celebration. The festival will interpret Indiana dunes ecology and history through art and celebrate the partnership between the arts and ecology. Mark Coleman, the artist of our beautiful poster, will be on hand to sign printed copies, which will be for sale and will help raise funds for the event. This is also a great time to check out the new Fire & Water at Washington Park beach. Free samples of gelato will be given out! We invite all media and general public to attend, as this will be a great time to learn about the event and what it will be about.

Look what made #12! Join the Miller Spotlight Environment and Eco Tourism and/or our Area Context Action Group and help us move up the ranks a bit!
