PORTER — Women have played an integral role in the preservation of the Indiana Dunes, and to mark Women’s History Month, the Dunes Learning Center will be telling some of their stories.

On March 30, the center will host an evening Zoom presentation remembering the past and empowering the future in the next virtual installment of “Wonder Women of the Dunes.”
