VALPARAISO | The Duneland Exchange Club's 11th annual Family Frog Hunt will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m. May 31 at Sunset Hill Farm County Park, in conjunction with the Porter County Wildlife Management Advisory Board's Celebration of Wildlife.

Saturday's Frog Hunt activities include a tadpole hunt for children age 5 and younger and a frog hunt for everyone. Find any of the 50 "pretend" frogs hidden along the park trails and share in cash prizes valued from $10 to $500. The cost for adults 16 and older to participate in the frog hunt is $10. The cost is $5 for children 5 to 16. All children participating in the hunt must be accompanied by an adult.

The family-oriented Celebration of Wildlife will be from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday featuring exhibits displaying native and exotic wildlife. Each day there will be activities, food vendors and entertainment. Admission for the Wildlife Celebration is free.

The Duneland Exchange Club is a non-profit organization that serves the Duneland area through a variety of projects, including the prevention of child abuse. The Family Frog Hunt is one of three annual fund-raisers to help fund our community service projects. Proceeds from these events go towards The Blue Ribbon Child Abuse Awareness Campaign, youth recognition events, crime, fire and safety programs in the Duneland schools and other community service programs. The club is looking for business sponsors to underwrite the cost of these programs and events. There are several different levels of sponsorship available including individual event sponsorships. For information becoming a sponsor contact Pam Strudas, club president, at (219) 508-0371.
