In the midst of one of the nation’s fastest growing suburban areas, there’s a precious remnant of prairie tucked along the White River, reminding us of the ways water and land shape our communities. Meet us there for an evening walk, then stick around as we gather around a campfire to eat, talk and watch the fireflies come out.
Each trek is co-led by a humanities scholar and a naturalist. Along the way, we stop to read short writings by Indiana nature writers. Each trek concludes with a shared meal and discussion around a campfire.
Your ticket price includes a campfire meal, Upland Brewing Co. beers and snacks from Bloomington’s Everyday Adventure Treats, in addition to any entrance or rental fees associated with the trek.
