The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is identified as one the top 25 U.S. National Parks in peril due to climate disruption. The goal of the adaptation plan is to promote climate-minded management and conservation decisions in the Indiana Dunes region based on the research and expertise compiled throughout this project.

The Indiana Dunes project involves meetings and conference calls with an Advisory Committee, a Climate Science Working Group, and various Illinois and Indiana experts who will lend advice. Work will be ongoing through 2017, with the final phase including outreach events with Indiana residents and other stakeholders through February 2018.
