Leopold bench workshop at Dunes State Park on March 16

Indiana Dunes State Park is hosting an Aldo Leopold bench workshop at 2 p.m . Saturday, March 16 in the nature center auditorium.

Participants will build their own Leopold bench to take home after a short program on the man who promoted conservation of the land and natural resources. Leopold is credited with developing the simple yet stable design that makes his namesake bench unique. The benches are a common feature in parks across the United States and can be built with minimal materials.

All materials are supplied, but participants should bring a screwdriver or power drill and an adjustable wrench. Each participant will receive a copy of Leopold’s book, “A Sand County Almanac.”

The cost of the workshop is $50, payable by cash or check the day of the program. Space is limited. Sponsorship comes from the Friends of Indiana Dunes group.

For more information, or to reserve a spot, call (219) 926-1390. Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
