Join Save the Dunes for a day of outdoor clean-up at the historic Barker House.


Barker House is the headquarters for the Save the Dunes staff members. After two years of remote working and no in-person events, the grounds of Barker House are in need of some TLC.
If you are looking for an opportunity to help our organization, get outside, and spend some time enjoying the beautiful Barker Woods Nature Preserve, then this is the perfect opportunity to help us turn a new leaf (pun intended)!


From trimming back bushes, to moving leaves and sticks, to pulling vining plants off of buildings- we have tasks for all skill levels. You can drop in for an hour, or stay all afternoon. We’ll provide all equipment needed, and volunteers will have access to the restrooms inside Barker House.


The address is 444 Barker Road, Michigan City, IN 46360.


Rain date will be Wednesday, October 5th from 1p-4p
