Next Indiana Campfires
About

Indiana’s landscapes have inspired generations of Hoosiers. The literature they’ve written and the state parks system they founded are legacies we enjoy today. What will we leave for generations to come? Next Indiana Campfires pairs nature and literature to ignite conversations about Indiana’s future.

Trek and talk with us! During the outing, a humanities scholar will lead attendees by foot, stopping periodically to read aloud the words of important Hoosier authors. A naturalist will also be on the trail to identify interesting plants, animals and other Hoosier ecological and geological features. We’ll wrap up around a campfire with an Upland Brewing Co. beer and discuss connections between nature, literature and place.

Thanks once again to Upland Brewing Co. and UGo Bars, LLC, you’ll have delicious beer and snacks on the trail. We’re also grateful for the support of the Ball Brothers Foundation for supporting the 2017 series.

ATTENDEE TESTIMONIALS

“The Next Indiana Campfires program is terrific. I can’t say enough good things about connecting people to Indiana outdoors and Hoosier writers! Indiana Humanities has hit a home run.”

Susan Sutton, two-time program participant
