Description

ABOUT NEXT INDIANA CAMPFIRES

After a fun and unforgettable 2016 slate of statewide excursions, Next Indiana Campfires is back!

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 oddities. We'll wrap up around a campfire with an Upland Brewing Co. beer and discuss connections between nature, literature and place.

HEARD ON THE WATER

“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
