Wetlands, Wind & Water Festival

  • Wolf Lake Initiative at Calumet College 2400 New York Avenue Whiting, IN United States (map)

AWLI’s initial festival was held in 2001 as a way to showcase Wolf Lake as a bi-state resource for recreation, education, and family fun. These are usually two-day events held over Memorial Day Weekend. Morning activities are held at the Environmental Education Center, Hammond. Afternoon events are held at the William Powers State Fish & Wildlife Area in Chicago. Activities include canoeing and kayaking, fishing clinic, kite flying, face painting, and demonstrations of wind surfing, sailing, and competitive rowing.

A sunrise service, complete with ecumenical choir and color guard, starts Sunday events at the William Powers State Fish & Wilflife Area. This is followed by breakfast and other activities.
