Controversy Surrounds Indiana Dunes Renovation


The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is perhaps the most widely known landmark in the state.

The fifteen mile string of sand dunes and marshes along the southern tip of Lake Michigan are an environmentally protected area, and comprise the fourth most plant diverse ecosystem in the country.

At the center of the 15,000 acre park is the aging State Park Pavilion.
As WFHB Correspondent Alex Davis reports, a controversial decision to renovate the Pavilion to include a rooftop bar and convention center is using federal funds to increase the structure’s footprint.
