Environmental Education Center in Hammond, Indiana

This is one of these little hidden gems that is a great stop for families visiting the area. There are limited hours, but if you call ahead and are able to stop when they are open for visitors, it offers a wonderful educational opportunity and a place for some play and exploration for little ones. While the facility is mainly used for field trips and education resources for local schools, it is also open to the public.

Within the building is a trout stream with trout that have been raised in local classrooms and then brought back to the indoor stream. A two-story treehouse play area offers fun for little ones. There's also a room full of recyclable items and tables where you can sit and craft items out of cardboard, plastic and other items.

For more information or to schedule a group tour, call 219-853-2420 or visit
