Indiana Dunes National Park

frogsFrogs and salamanders are a long-standing interest of researcher Robert Brodman of Saint Joseph’s College in Renssalaer, Indiana. What do we really know about these creatures? What secrets do they have that humans want to copy? How about a trick to survive freezing and thawing temperatures?

Dr. Brodman and park rangers from Indiana Dunes will be working together to create new learning opportunities for visitors who want to take a closer look at wildlife at Indiana Dunes National Park.
