Calumet Stewardship Initiative

The Calumet Region

The Calumet region borders the southern edge of Lake Michigan with a compelling mix of extraordinary natural areas, technological wonders, and vibrant and diverse human communities. The area stretches from the parks and industries of Chicago’s Lake Calumet area to the sands and steel mills that surround a great national park – the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

From rich swaths of globally rare natural habitat, to world-renowned centers of learning and leadership, to a textured mosaic of homes, communities and workplaces, the Calumet region stands out as one of the nation’s great and distinctive landscapes.
