The December 17 installment of the  Calumet Outdoors Series is slated to take place at a Beyond the Beach site.

Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve is 167 acres of an aesthetically stunning marriage of nature and culture, and is also a popular hiking, biking, fishing area in Northwest Indiana.

If you’ve never been to Coffee Creek, this hike is the perfect time to visit a unique setting. The weather forecast seems cooperative, and the hike will be led by Kris Krouse, Executive Director of Shirley Heinze Land Trust.  This is a great opportunity to learn about two organizations with some of the best natural settings in the region.

As always, the hike will start at 9 AM. Participants are instructed to meet at the pavilion parking area on 1050 North, and everyone can warm up by the fire with hot chocolate afterward.

Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve is located on 1050 North in Chesterton, Indiana, just east of State Route 49.  To get there from I-94, exit at 26-A (Chesterton exit), Look for the white fence on the left.  Turn left at the next break in the median, Voyage Boulevard.  Head back north on State Route 49 to 1050 North, which will be the next right.
