Next Indiana Campfires: Cope Environmental Center (Centerville)
From the sandy dunes in the north to the rolling hills in the south, Indiana’s landscapes have inspired generations of Hoosiers. The literature they’ve written and the state parks system they founded for the 1916 Centennial are legacies we enjoy today. What will we leave for the future? Next Indiana Campfires is a unique way to connect nature, literature and Indiana’s Bicentennial.
A humanities scholar will serve as facilitator and lead attendees on by foot and stop periodically to read aloud the words of important Hoosier authors. Participants will then gather to discuss connections between nature, literature and place.
About the excursion: Join Indiana Humanities and the Cope Environmental Center for a sunset hike around the Center grounds followed by a discussion around a campfire with s’mores and Upland Brewing Co. beer.
Difficulty level: Easy - moderate
Excursion details: Come dressed for the outdoors! We recommend the proper footwear (tennis shoes or hiking boots), sunscreen and bug spray. Please bring your own filled, reusable water bottle to take with you on the outing.
Scholar-facilitator: Kevin McKelvey, University of Indianapolis
