Giving Tuesday is a global movement encouraging acts of kindness and support for each other and the causes we care about. On December 3, 2019, join the movement and give - whether it's some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your community.
Save the Dunes believes that we can all be advocates who effect the kind of change that makes our world a better place. Join us at one or at all of these events to celebrate our natural areas in the Indiana dunes!
