Monarch Music Fest to Benefit Save the Dunes
Music, bbq, beer, a beautiful woodsy setting, a silent auction and more. All to benefit Save the Dunes!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 12 and plan to spend your afternoon listening to live music at the Brewery Lodge & Supper Club in Michigan City, Indiana. The Brewery Lodge offers a unique setting with a beautiful tented area to hang out along with trails to hike…and hey, a hotel to stay! Tickets are $40 each and include 3 bands, a full plate of bbq, 2 beer & wine tickets and a silent auction. The best part about it, is that $20 goes straight back to Save the Dunes. The proceeds will benefit their work to protect and advocate for the Indiana dunes, Lake Michigan and the surrounding natural areas for the betterment of the environment, and the people who live, work and recreate in Northwest Indiana – including our hard-working pollinators!
The all star music line-up will include:
Johnny V & Friends
Alex Akers of Caught on Cline
Chicken Dolphin Band
Tickets are $40, but you also have the opportunity to purchase your very own Save the Dunes’ stainless steel cup for an additional $10. Can’t make the event? You are also welcome to just donate to Save the Dunes.
Think ahead because there are only 250 tickets available. Please note that this is a 21+ event and you must provide a valid photo ID.
How does Save the Dunes support monarchs and other pollinators?
The Monarch’s migration is one of the most incredible events in North America and has captivated people for centuries. Monarch populations are in steep decline due to habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change, and pollution. Dedicated work across all sectors of society is underway to help Monarch populations recover. These efforts include planting milkweed (Asclepias species) essential for the Monarch’s survival and building awareness of the perils facing all pollinators, including the Monarch. Save the Dunes is actively engaged in several pollinator conservation initiatives to foster protection in our natural areas and at home in our gardens. Our most recent initiative is the creation of Volume 2 of Living in the Dunes: A Homeowner’s Guide to Pollinator Garden Landscaping in Indiana’s Coastal Communities. The Guide provides rich content on the diverse ecosystems, incredible pollinator species, and beautiful native plants found throughout Northwest Indiana. It also provides the tools and inspiration to transform the everyday gardener into a powerful protector of native pollinators at home. Be sure to pick up your guide at the fest!
