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.
In 2019, the award-winning Next Indiana Campfires program will head to seven new locations in the White River watershed and in northern Indiana. As we hike and paddle together, we’ll learn about Indiana wildflowers, float through Indy’s Broad Ripple and Rocky Ripple neighborhoods and walk through an oak woodland around a glacial lake. We’ll also see if we can draw comparisons between ecological connectedness and other ways Hoosiers relate to each other across geographic, social, cultural and political boundaries.
Thanks to a sponsorship from Upland Brewing Co., we’ll continue to serve their signature brews on the trail. We are also grateful for the generous support of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust for underwriting the 2019 series.
